The Washington Capitals looked like they were about to go 0 for 2 on the power play to start the second period. Unable to gain the zone until late in their second man advantage, the Caps eventually got some traffic in front of the net, but it wasn’t going in.
The puck rebounded behind Carey Price’s net and it seemed the play was over. But then Alex Ovechkin put all those juggling skills he’s practicing to use. He grabbed the puck mid-air, brought it back to the front of the net, and put it behind Price to open up scoring.
After what seems like weeks without offense, the Capitals may be back. Thank Ovi.
8:20PM Update: Ovechkin’s goal came just as the power play expired. It has been changed to an even-strength marker.
