Ovechkin +1

Alexander Ovechkin tallied two assists and a +1 defensive rating last night (the Caps lost 3-2 in OT). The plus rating is even more significant than the two assists (a rare recent multipoint game for Ovechkin), as he desperately is in need of positive adjustments to his team-worst -17 rating. It's a step in the right direction, as he has only four games left to further improve, and follow the team's mid-season directive that he must add more "grit" and "defense" to his game.
