That goal just happened to come against the Capitals’ Metropolitan Division rival New Jersey Devils and… you know what? Kudos to the Devils organization for stepping up and allowing the Capitals to properly celebrate the achievement on the road. The Devils’ fans also showed a ton of respect in cheering for Ovehckin’s milestone.

What’s even cooler though is the fact that the Devils are actually shipping the net that Ovi scored his 700th goal on to his home in Washington D.C. Yeah… the Devils are gifting Ovi his 700th goal net.
