A Night of Milestones With Okposo and Ovechkin

Kyle Okposo scores his first NHL goal in his second game helping the New York Islanders down the New Jersey Devil 3-1. Meanwhile in Atlanta, Alexander Ovechkin scores two goals and leads the Washington Capitals to a remarkable four goal third period comeback over the Atlanta Thrashers to keep the Caps' playoff hopes alive. He also added two assists and finished at a +4 with 9 shots on goal. The goals were his 59th and 60th of the season, making him the first player to reach the 60 goals mark since Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr did it nearly a decade ago.
