At least Ovi scored two...
10/29/11 Ovi, Brouwer, Knuble, Johansson, Hendricks talk after the game
Alex Ovechkin had jump from the outset, going hard to the net and, unsurprisingly, being rewarded for it with the Caps' first goal, a penalty drawn early in the second, and then a power-play goal moments thereafter (from exactly where one might have expected the shot to have come). It's almost as if AO knew he was being televised across Canada... and perhaps that extra juice was a factor in his bad third period interference penalty on Alex Edler which directly led to the game-winning goal.
2 goals, 1 penalty (2 min) total ice time 18:48, 21 shifts, average shift 00:53, PP 03:55, even 14:53, 5 shots on goal, 1 missed, 1 hit, 1 giveaway, 1 faceoff lost
Ovi scores his 4th goal of the season at 8:55 in the first period (Brouwer, Backstrom)
Ovi scores his 5th goal (also the 100th power play goal of his career) (1:25 in the second, Backstrom, Carlson)
MarJo ties the game 4-4:
Marcus Johnasson continues to shine for Washington. There are times when he appears to be the best forward on the ice. His skating speed invariably creates odd-man rushes and he wheeled in on Luongo to tie the score before the end of the middle frame.
H/t to Emily.
