He was invisible for you because you were looking at another team I think.
Another very good game for Ovi last night. He was clearly the most dangerous player on the ice and his line with Wolski and Ribeiro had a whole lot of chances. And his 7 SOG are pretty impressive. Clearly his best game yet, it's a shame he didn't find the net and Wolski missed on his tremendous pass.
Ovechkin steadily improves with each game, very few shifts now when he gets locked up in his own zone like it often happened with him and Backstrom early last year and in the first few games this season.
i agree i was wondering why ribeiro hadn't been playing on a line with ovechkin after the right wing experiment failed and they broke up backstrom and ovechkin. riberio's passing skills will lead to better scoring chances for ovechkin which will hopefully increase his point output along with the fact that he's been a slow starter over recent years
