The Philadelphia Flyers followed a familiar pattern in another close loss, but the biggest story around the NHL on Tuesday centered around the Great 8.

Make that the Great 800.

Washington superstar Alex Ovechkin became the third player in NHL history to reach the 800-goal mark in the Capitals’ 7-3 win in Chicago.

Ovechkin had a hat trick and moved to within one goal of tying Gordie Howe as the second-leading goal scorer in NHL history. He got a Bud Light shower after the game.

Wayne Gretzky is No. 1 (for now) with 894 career goals.
