1 assist, total ice time 17:35, 22 shifts, average shift 00:47, PP 00:53, even 16:42, 2 shots on goal, 1 attempt blocked, 1 missed, 4 hits, 1 takeaway
The average shift of 47 seconds? that's unheard of Alex Ovechkin. But if you analyze other forwards stats, only Semin (53) and Perreault (49) had more with less total ice time of 16:03 and 9:53 respectively. If Ovi had less total ice time than other forwards, then we have a problem.
What's more important, the team continues to win, beating Cats 3:0 in the last game. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, and Bruce is rolling all four lines. Sooner or later the slump will end and personal stats are less important nowadays.
Ovi missed today's morning skate because of the few "bumps and bruises", according to Bruce Boudreau, "with two more games this week, we just told him to take off and get some stretching done."
