Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson
became the 75th player in NHL history to score 1,000 points when he scored into an empty net to cap a hat trick and wrap up the Senators' 4-2 victory at Buffalo.
Alfredsson started the night with 997 points and reached the milestone by scoring once in each period. His power-play goal 11:54 into the game gave the Senators a 1-0 lead, his slap shot past Ryan Miller
at 10:44 of the second snapped a 2-2 tie, and his backhander from center ice found the open net with 22 seconds remaining for point No. 1,000. It came in his 1,009th NHL game.
Alfredsson, 37, has 379 goals and 621 assists in his career -- all of which has been spent with the Senators. He has 4 goals and 8 points in seven games this season.
Alfredsson has nine consecutive seasons of 70 or more points, including 71 in 70 games last season. His biggest season came in 2005-06, when he had career bests of 43 goals and 103 points.
