Alex Ovechkin was everywhere. He scored a goal. He had an assist. He played on two lines and was on the ice for nearly half the game. And, when the Minnesota Wild had a shorthanded break, he hustled back and slid to break up Mikko Koivu’s shot on the 2-on-1 break.
“It was a great slide. Like he was playing ‘D’ all his life,’’ Washington Capitals coach Dale Hunter said.
