Alex Ovechkin absolutely ripped a one-timer past Tuukka Rask on Saturday afternoon to give the Washington Capitals a 1-0 lead in the first period.

Ovechkin showed why he’s so dangerous on the power play, notching two goals on the man-advantage to propel the Caps past the Bruins 4-2. The winger raised his league-leading total to 43 goals, and he also reached 800 career points on his second tally of the afternoon.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.



Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
