Alex Ovechkin became the first Russian to score 500 NHL goals and the fifth fastest player to reach that milestone on Sunday night, as the Capitals beat the Senators 7-1 at Verizon Center. Justin Williams, T.J. Oshie, Zach Still, and Dmitry Orlov had put the Caps up 4-1 before Ovechkin tallied on the PP, becoming the first Washington Capitals player to score 500 goals. Tom Wilson added a sixth midway through the third period, then Ovechkin scored his second of the game, powering past Erik Karlsson to get his 501st NHL goal and the Capitals seventh goal of the night.
