Ovechkin Scores And…Um…Still Thinking…

Alex Ovechkin celebrates his second period goal against the Atlanta Thrashers, his first in 10 games during their NHL ice hockey game at Verizon Center.

The good news at Verizon Center for the Washington Capitals was that Alex Ovechkin found his way back onto the score sheet in the “G” column against the visiting Atlanta Thrashers.  The sellout crowd was happy, do you think he was?

After that, the good news was…um…ah…yeah.  The game got off to a very quick start without a stop in play until the 8:50 mark of the first period and then settled into what felt like a mid season grind of a game. There were some interesting player-player stories unfolding, like the one between the Thrashers Alexander Burmistov and the Capitals Jason Chimera where Burmistov kept putting his stick in Chimera’s face but was only called for it once…not that the Capitals could capitalize on it as their power play shot blanks all five chances it got.

For the details, read it from those that can write it like Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine Never Breaks and On Frozen Blog.  You’re only here to see the photos anyway. They’re below and on flickr.  Thanks!
