Caps OT: Ovechkin hitting his stride
-- -- -- Welcome the caps OT presented by -- plays Kelly Allen Allen may. Alan may let's get into the pivotal player of this week. Well without a doubt Alexander Ovechkin is that guy and having a hat -- shattered against the New Jersey -- and he's been playing very well and here's a guy that's been. Getting just annihilated in the media throughout North America and I think he's been playing very well and I had been a lot of radio shows that you need I've been reading a lot of different things and people are always in the you know that I'm kind of his lawyer but this guy was a quarter -- -- week before shooting. And all the sudden you know he's hitting across furcal and over the glass and you sit across foursquare council back in the crease. Well this week Q the quarter inch inside the post and sent -- cross for the puck is going where it needs to. Finishing his hits making great shots moving his legs got a pocket that he has the puck and a string right now done excellent job and without a doubt he's a pivotal player. Harry Allen movie now tied for the lead in goals on this team and seventeenth in the league with as eight goals that he has on the season. Allen do we expect more of that kind of play that we saw on Saturday out of events and. All the biggest thing you know being a former players understand that a player gets in a rhythm and there comes a time in any struggled when he pushed and pushed he never gave up. And he he looked to me like he was getting closer to finding his rhythm while the last few games especially last game at ice level. You could see that everything he was doing globally was passing the puck we was receiving his passes holly was getting open finishing his fifth. You can tell that he's in a rhythm he's got his confidence the puck was coming off the stick so smooth people are blocking shots is not bouncing over there. So without a doubt I expect him to really take charge and he's gonna start to separate himself from. Troy Brower and -- war in the goal scoring department and it's gonna could come with a lot more regularity I expect some more Patrick Moore to bowl games for multi goal game without a doubt. And teams need to be scared of him once again. RA two big games coming up Tuesday and Wednesday for the capitals a lot of points on the table that they desperately need right now on for the biggest thing they've got to find a way to beat Carolina who's now leading the Southeast Division and Carolina under Kirk -- been a completely different team and last year they were all over the capitals the capitals didn't have any answers. One afternoon last I think it was last February of last march Tomas book soon. Had a game -- he'd be the island beat the Carolina Hurricanes all by himself they were shot. But in the capitals didn't have an answer when they wanted to Carolina and the biggest thing you have to do get to find -- -- to stifle them in the neutral zone you've got to make sure that you get to the front of their net. Take advantage they've had a lot of injuries on defense are yet to take advantage of the guys that are back or they're not the biggest. So you have to worry about the idea first and foremost before if they're worried about going in the Philadelphia and getting the victory there.
