The Washington Capitals’ game against the New York Rangers Sunday was one of those disasters where, as a fan, forgetting it happened is better than actually discussing it.
So let’s make this quick. Alex Ovechkin scored his 35th goal of the season. It was on a two-man advantage. It was pretty.

Everyone in the entire arena knew Ovechkin was going to shoot, including Henrik Lundqvist. He still scored.
That fact was not lost on NBCSN’s Dave Schrader.

Things are pretty dire right now. The Capitals keep losing and keep sinking in the standings.
At least we have Ovi to marvel at.
