The Washington Capitals have been around since 1974, and in that time, 400 players have scored at least one goal for the franchise. With a couple of other players in the lineup who could have taken the honors, it was Michael Sgarbossa who became No. 400, though he didn’t even really take a shot or knew he scored right away, because the puck bounced off him after a bad clearing attempt by a Canadiens player.

Anyway, congratulations on this milestone that no one was keeping track of, Sgarbossa!

Here are the other milestones or interesting ones.
