What slump?
Alex Ovechkin is not having the best season of his career and the struggles have been evident as he has been more subdued than normal this weekend.

But the Capitals superstar doesn't struggle in All-Star Games.

In his first three appearances, he had 4 goals. It took him just 52 seconds to find the back of the net Sunday for Team Staal. Ovechkin's goal was a bit lucky as his centering pass bounced off Team Lidstrom defender Duncan Keith and skittered past Marc-Andre Fleury.

"He has not failed ever," Emerick said.

Team Staal got two more goals in the first four minutes to take a 3-0 lead. Team Staal goalie Cam Ward is mic'd for the Versus coverage and he admitted that he felt a little bad for his counterpart at the other end, who is not having the start he envisioned.


Quote of the Day

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
