Again - Ovechkin is a slow starter, last year he started off even worse. Finished it well. You will say that he played in the K earlier. He played for a coach known for his tough, exhausting practices. This team (Dynamo) goes through major slumps mid-season every year and only having 8 & 19 on the roster saved them from slumping this year. Rest of the team was awful and they have kind of lost the pace now when Ovi and Nick are gone. Dynamo team is built for postseason and it gave result last year. And such conditioning has sure affected both Ovechkin and Backstrom. Before last night Nick was even worse than Alex. I think Znarok's conditioning in Dynamo has to play a big role in it.
Lots of players start slow. Okay, no biggy. How do explain the red flag that is a consistent drop in points over the past few years? It's been a steady decline. Franchise players don't do that on the right side of 30.
