VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Alex Ovechkin scored twice, passing Wayne Gretzky for the most road goals in NHL history, and the Washington Capitals beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Ovechkin has scored 403 of his 793 career goals away from home. Gretzky holds the overall record with 894.

"It's always nice when you beat the Great One," Ovechkin said. "It doesn't matter what kind of milestone it is. It's history."
