Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 741st career NHL goal against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. The goal ties Brett Hull for fourth place on the NHLโ€™s all-time Goals list.

The goal came in the second period on a deflected shot made by Dmitry Orlov. Ovechkin now has 36 goals in 56 career games against the Sabres.
