The victorious washer in an overtime was for Russian hockey 17th in NHL career. Ovechkin came in second place in League history by this measure, beating the Czech's Patrik Elias (16). Ahead is only another Czech — Jaromir Jagr (19 goals in overtime).

Goalkeeper "Washington" Braden Holtby scored a 42nd win of the season and broke the club record for wins, which formerly belonged to the German Olaf Kolzig (season 1999/2000). The League record for victories in a season belongs to Martin Brodeur (48 wins for "new Jersey" in the season-2006/07).

It is also worth noting that "Washington" won a 50-win streak at 69 games of the regular season. In League history more quickly to this level was reached only three clubs — "Detroit" (1995/96, 66 games), Boston (1970/71, 67 games), Montreal (1977/78, 68 matches). Of them a Stanley Cup in those seasons took only "Montreal".

In order to break the NHL record for most victories in a season (62), which belongs to the "Detroit", "Washington" have to win all 13 ostavchihsa League games.
