On occasion of his 600th career goal, measuring Alex Ovechkin career success vs. Bruins

Geoff Burke/USA TODAY Sports

Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin became the 20th player in NHL history to reach the 600-goal milestone in Monday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets. He achieved the mark in his 990th career game. Only three players reached the feat in fewer games: Wayne Gretzky (718), Mario Lemieux (719) and Brett Hull (900).

Ovechkin is one of the most exciting generational players in over a decade, and he's had some interesting games against the Bruins during his career -- it's always fun to see Ovechkin go head-to-head with veteran defenseman Zdeno Chara. Maybe that's why the Bruins are the 14th-most scored against team on Ovechkin's list.
