Alex Ovechkin just scored again– this time thanks to a smart play by Brooks Orpik. Orpik, winding up from the point, fired a shot that Leafs goaltender James Reimer could not corral. The rebound spilled to Ovechkin in the slot, who backhanded the puck home.
Ovechkin leads the league in goals with 41. See Ovechkin’s first of the game (and his botched celebration).
After the goal, Ovi saluted Orpik and Burakovsky looked miserable.
