Bruins Take Away Alex Ovechkin’s Effectiveness On Power Play (Video)

The Washington Capitals got their first power-play opportunity late in the first period on Saturday afternoon, but the Boston Bruins’ penalty kill went to work and kept the Caps, and more specifically Alex Ovechkin, off the board.

Oveckin, who far and away leads the league in power-play goals with 22 on the season, didn’t add to his increasing number against the B’s. The Black and Gold displayed a full-team effort in shutting down No. 8 as Chris Kelly, Loui Eriksson, Johnny Boychuk and Zdeno Chara all did their parts to win puck battles, clog the shooting lanes and keep Ovi goal-less.
