Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin continues to place his name among the all-time greats. In Friday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Ovechkin scored the 742nd goal of his NHL career and passed Brett Hull for sole possession of fourth place on the league’s all-time goals list.

Steph Curry stands alone.

The Golden State Warriors’ point guard set an all-time NBA record on Friday night, passing Ray Allen for the most 3-point field goals made in a career.

The official SportsCenter Twitter account tweeted out the specifics of the accomplishment following the Dubs’ victory over the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Bulls on November 12, 2021.
