After a few days of national team play and a new silver trophy for Ovi, Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom returned to Dynamo Moscow to show off the chemistry that makes them one of the most dangerous duos on the planet. On Wednesday, Backstrom had two points and his brother from another mother had one goal in Dynamo’s 4-3 loss to Sibir.
On Friday, Dynamo was back at it again, this time facing Dmitry Orlov’s former team, Metallurg Novokuznetsk. Backstrom and Ovechkin both scored again, assisting on each other’s goals. Ovi finished with a goal and two assists. Backstrom scored the game-winning goal and notched two points. Dynamo won 4-2.
