I don’t know why, but last game, I don’t feel that power or something,” Ovechkin said to the throng of media. “I talked to Bruce, and how I said, I didn’t play my game at all last night. It’s not about Montreal. It’s all about me.”

That may be true. But the Canadiens also deserve credit. In fact, they’ve held Ovechkin without a goal four times in five games this season and without a point on three occasions.

Ovechkin saw all three Canadiens defensive pairs early and was matched up a lot against Jaroslav Spacek in the third period. It wasn’t just Spacek, though. It was the combination of Montreal’s veteran defensemen getting in Ovechkin’s face and the Habs’ forwards diligently applying pressure from back side. The end result? Ovechkin had nowhere to go with the puck.
