Unable to muster much offense during the first 35 minutes of the game, the Capitals finally woke from their slumber during four-on-four with the Wild (Thanks, Tom Wilson)!
Alex Ovechkin was of course the benefactor. He scored his 46th goal of the season on an impressive individual effort. Taking a pass from Karl Alzner in the defensive zone, Ovechkin turned on the afterburners in neutral and slung a low and hard shot toward Devan Dubnyk. Dubnyk gave up a huge rebound off his pads, and Ovechkin beat him glove side.
