MONTREAL (AP) -Alex Ovechkin kept his spray of ice well clear of the kids with the Montreal Canadiens flags.

As the Capitals captain led his team on the ice before Monday night's playoff game, Ovechkin skated hard and jammed on the brakes, but sent the snow into the boards in front of the Washington bench.

During his previous visit, Ovechkin upset some by spraying one of two boys on skates in Canadiens gear who were waving team flags beside the rink entrance near the benches.

Ovechkin had said he meant no harm and that it would give the boy something to remember.
