Alex Ovechkin did it again. We don’t have to tell you what he did. You already know.
Okay, okay, come closer. Closer. Cloooossserrrr.
Psst. Ovi Spot.

The Caps got a PP in the second period as Brandon Dubinsky high-sticked John Carlson. With the offensive-zone faceoff won, Backstrom carried the puck along the half wall. But instead of reversing the John Carlson, Backstrom found a seam. He made the skip-a-man pass to Ovechkin on the weak side.
Ovi don’t miss.
This is Ovechkin’s first career playoff game with two power-play goals. So much for the “specialty act.”
Interesting to note how Washington is getting their PP goals. Kuznetsov scored twice on the rush in Game One, and Ovi has scored twice after faceoffs. Neither time have the Caps successfully gained the zone, got in formation, and then scored.
