Ovechkin roofs wrister for PPG

Alex Ovechkin sets up in the circle on the power play, gets a feed from Kevin Shattenkirk and rips a wicked wrister to pad the Capitals' lead.

"All three of them are working together. They're making plays. They don't spend a lot of time in their own zone. They're responsible defensively. They've got a real good hound mentality around the puck and keeping pucks alive, and when they keep pucks alive, they create offense." - Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Ovy.

"I think you saw it last playoffs too. He was rolling. He was playing some really good hockey in the playoffs. I think [he's] one of our best players. He knows what time it is. He's a veteran guy now. He's poised to make a good run here and lead us through hopefully a deep postseason." -T.J. Oshie on Alex Ovechkin
