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.

    FYI – That’s not a beer gut on Ovi, that’s PURE, UNADULTERATED TUMMY MUSCLE.

    Nice game tying goal by Arnott! A milestone that could not have come at a better time — to tie the game up! (And our female audience will love that picture of Arnott with both Semin and Ovi being shirtless — must admit to being in that category.)

    Sasha can’t get enough of this fella!

  • John P.

    Jesus Ovi’s gut is massive.

    Oh wait, who was it who scored his 400th career goal? What’s his name? Never mind, I got very very distracted by the pic. Shirtless Ovie…*sigh*

    Excuse me while I throw some cold water on my face. Must regain consciousness to *right click, SAVE with Rachel Cohen. BTW, Chris Gordon and I now have the same computer background. :)

    @Ian: thanks for pointing out Ovie’s PURE, UNADULTERATED TUMMY MUSCLE! Not that I needed help noticing LOL!

    @Bobby and Chris – I was thinking the same thing. It will be my new wallpaper on my computer

    Those crazy ass Russians!

    Congrats Arnott!

    I am one female that may just puke after seeing that picture. Plus, the man-love between Arnott and Semin is unreal. Arnott doesn’t even have his arm around Ovi…just Semin. God, I love hockey.

    Yes, right clicked and saved!

    We don’t have to worry about Arnott’s love for Ovi. Sounds like they’re out to dinner every time you turn around.

    Ya’ll crack me up with the responses on this website. I have been laughing my butt off for the last ten minutes. As I pry myself away from the picture, I have decided that in my next life, I will come back as a NHL trainer so I can be surrounded by half-naked Russians every day. So help me God….yes I will….

  • Elle

    That picture is ridiculous. Arnott looks jubilant. Semin reminds me of a little kid with that face, and Ovi needs no explanation. Never does Ovi ever need explanation.

    Actually, the old man looks like he’s in better shape than the two much younger Russkies here. Not so much Wodka and perozhki, I suspect.
