Morning pixels: Ovi’s 15 minutes of fun


It wouldn’t be a Capitals playoff game if it was decided by more than one goal. It also wouldn’t be proper if we weren’t talking about Alex Ovechkin’s playing time.

Ovi’s 15 minutes, 14 seconds of ice time in the Caps’ win included three shots, five hits, three blocked shots, one power play goal and one very fun-to-watch shot from his butt.

What can you do in 15 minutes?

Braden Holtby isn’t concerned, and if it’s good enough to win, it’s good enough for me.

“Obviously that’s huge for our team, Ovi scoring, but him needing to step up — there’s a lot more to hockey than scoring goals,” Holtby said. “You know, he blocked a big shot at the end of last game, and it’s the little things. We’re not too concerned. We can score goals as a group, and as long as he’s doing the little things that everyone else needs to do, that’s all that matters.”

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* Adam Kilgore with a gentle reminder that Stephen Strasburg won’t be pitching the whole season.

* The Peterson-Khan rematch is canceled after a positive drug test led to Las Vegas denying Peterson a license to fight.

* Davey Johnson is just as frustrated as we are about the Nats’ slump. “I don’t know,” Johnson said. “I’m getting over this one before I think about tomorrow.”
