Guest Writer: Ty Anderson: 800th for No. 8 in win over Bruins

Superstar sniper Alexander Ovechkin’s first National Hockey League point came all the way back on Oct. 5, 2005, a goal scored against the Columbus Blue Jackets’ Pascal Leclaire. 2,704 days and 658 NHL games later, Washington’s captain now has 800 points in this league after a two-goal afternoon in a 4-2 Caps win over the Atlantic-best Boston Bruins at TD Garden. ...

The Columbus Blue Jackets Have Won Six In A Row
