Most 40-goal seasons: Alex Ovechkin.

Alex Ovechkin became the first NHL player to record 13 40-goal seasons

in the first period of Tuesday's home game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ovechkin moved right and shot towards the far post.

When a review revealed that Columbus defenseman Nick Blankenburg

had deflected the puck into the net, Ovechkin was awarded the goal.

Since 2005-06, only Ovechkin has had more than six 40-goal seasons.

Ovechkin is closing in on Gretzky's goal-scoring record.
