Almost every major outlet out there is talking about Alex Ovechkin and how the Rangers may be in trouble. Currently in this series the Caps have scored 4 goals and half of them are Ovechkin’s.

The Blueshirts also have 4 goals in this series, all scored by different players. So it’s becoming apparent, shut down Ovechkin and win the game. A victory tonight will give the Rangers a 2-1 advantage and could pave the way for a short series.
