Ovechkin benched during OT??!!

Here's what Boudreau said on Ovechkin's benching during the Caps OT win vs. the Ducks last night:

"I thought other guys were better than him and there was just a chance other guys might score the goal," Boudreau said. "Ninety-nine percent of the time Alex is the guy I think is going to score the goal. I just didn't think he was going to score the goal at that time tonight. You go with your gut feeling. I got lucky."

The Caps did win but should Boudreau ever bench a 2X MVP like that during a time like that?

It wasn't in OT. It was at the end of the 3rd with the goalie pulled.

He got an assist on the OT winner I believe.

Ovechkin was out to get the primary assist on the GWG, so it's more like BB timed it correctly.
PS I actually laughed when I saw how he got this assist. He should try himself in soccer, me thinks.

He was on the ice for the game winning goal, the puck went right off his foot to Backstrom. He was benched with Vokoun pulled and the Caps scored. It might have had something to do with him trying to skate through a defender all by himself while the Caps had a 3 on 2 on a late game PP while down a goal. Really selfish and stupid move on his part.

This would be a cool thread on the Caps board.

- already a thread

- wasnt benched in OT

- had a nice skate deflection to setup the GWG

- yes, you should bench underperforming players ... the 4 forwards played over him at the end of regulation were FAR better during the first 59 minutes and actually scored the GTG
