I think Ovechkin's 10 shots on goal are the highest for him this season. yet he didn't even get a point in this game. But the Caps win again, 7th in a row and that's all that matters!
Update from Tarik: "We got seven goals and [Alex Ovechkin] and [Mike Green] didn't get a point," Coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It says you've good balance in your team." Weird to see the Caps get seven goals and Ovechkin finish with 10 shots but no points. I though No. 8 was flying tonight, beginning with that shot he took while sliding on his knees a minute into the game. He also had a nice break-in later, but was stopped.
Total ice time 20:51, average shift 01:13, 10(!) shots on goal, 4 attempts blocked (hope Jack Hillen will get well soon)
