might i add, ovechkin around the middle of january started playing more with zubrus and clarke. but saw pp time with halpern and often centered by halpern with the net empty. halpern struggled with ovechkin, and that's why the change was made to zubrus moving to center to play with AO instead.
Here's another game. Hardly played with him at all.

Halpern is a much more complete player than Ribeiro, but since MTL re-signed Ribeiro, he's great.
