Ovechkin and Backstrom have spent a majority of their time together during the span of this data, but Semin was typically found on a different line. He typically topped out at around 20% of his even strength time with Ovie and Backstrom, while the rest of it was spent with an assortment of players (Laich, Johansson, Arnott, Belanger, Morrison, Chimera, Sturm, Fleischmann, etc).

They were typically united on the powerplay, but these stats are only 5-on-5.
