Alex Ovechkin was held without a shot on goal Saturday for the third time in the last seven games.
A little perspective here as the first time it happened earlier in the month was the first time in 316 games that Ovie had not had a shot on goal. "Obviously he’s a shooter; he’s got to get pucks to the net," Coach Barry Trotz said. "He’s a little off, a little bit off. Players will go through that." Ovechkin fell 45 games short of the NHL record of 360 held by Ray Bourque. Feb 26 - 10:46 AM
