A couple things i've noticed from watching this game. Mike Green does not seem anywhere near the player he once was. Obviously Ovechkin isn't either. But i feel like with Ovechkin, the skill is still there he just has changed his game so isn't effective anymore. I remember when he would get the puck, he instantly thought shot. Now it seems like he hesitates or tries to make a move.

Another thing, the hitting from his game is almost completely gone. He would just go like an animal for the puck and nail anyone in his way. Now he barely hits at all. I don't know whether he was messed up by Boudreau, the suspensions or he just did it on his own but as much as i hate the caps, it's sad to see a guy like that go so downhill at such a young age.

Just glad that contract isn't sitting on our team.

Edit: he's had an awesome last two shifts
