Ovechkin takes goal-scoring lead: Caps 2 Isles 1 OT Win

Two lazy points, but who's going to argue with getting two points?

Some thoughts and notes on the game:

Alex Ovechkin had yet another two-goal night in the great state of New York.

The Caps won't beat Ottawa if they bring this effort with them.

The Caps have been outscored 8-4 in matinee games, including this one. The Caps can thank the Flyers for that stat.

Jose Theodore looked like a fish flopping on a dry deck at times, but he deserved a shutout. A few questionable stick calls and a delay of game penalty crushed that dream.

The Caps may be weening themselves off Karl Alzner; his time on ice was 16:15. Mike Green led the ice time with 25:15.

The only Caps player with a losing faceoff average? Brooks Laich; he was 4-11.

This was the Isles' first point of the 2009 half of the season.

I'll have a pre-Cap for the Ottawa game up later!
