As the Capitals trailed the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 with 52 seconds left, Jason Arnott scored his 400th career goal on the power play, calmly taking a rebound off of an Alex Ovechkin point shot and backhanding it home past Jhonas Enroth. Boy was that exciting! Once the milestone was announced, Arnott received a huge standing ovation from the capacity crowd at Verizon Center. He responded by standing up on the bench and waving back. As this unfolded, Capitals Captain Alex Ovechkin smiled with glee and joined his teammates by banging his stick hard against the boards. What a moment! Below the jump, check out video of the milestone goal which pushed the game to OV-Time.
