BOSTON -- Watched that Capital disaster last night, Alex Ovechkin leading an onslaught against the Bruins. Ovechkin, who had one goal in his past eight games, registered a hat trick before the first period had even ended.
His first score gave him 50 for the season. Next stop, 60.
It appeared that Alex had four goals last night, he was originally credited with one in the third period. But that goal, which made it 9-2, was later given to Brooks Laich (spread the wealth, I always say).
So now the Panthers get a ticked off Boston club that was embarrassed 10-2 (only score: An Alex Auld safety). Will be very interesting to see how this Bruins club bounces back tonight.
-- Will update the site when I know who is in net. I have to think it's Auld, especially with the flip-flopping that went on last night.
-- Beautiful day in Boston, wish the Sox were in town. It's sunny, and it's 60. This is fantastic...
