FIRST STAR: Alex Ovechkin. Fully engaged Ovi in this one. A goal, which gave the Caps late life, five shots on goal, three blocked, five more missed and eight hits.
SECOND STAR: Jason Chimera. Two assists, though took a bad penalty during a string of bad penalties in the second period.
THIRD STAR: Troy Brouwer. Goal and an assist. 7 of 11 in the dot.
Goat of the game: Tom Wilson. Hate to kick a guy when he’s down, but there’s no place in the game for instigating contact during warmups. Total bush league move by a guy whose luster is starting to come off.
