Ovechkin's Tenth Goal of the Season Gives Caps 1-0 Lead

With a late first-period offensive-zone faceoff in tonight's game at Edmonton, Adam Oates sent out his top line in a familiar formation, with the League's top gunner in the trigger position. The result? Exactly as they drew it up:

Great work by both Swedes setting up Alex Ovechkin 's tenth goal of the year, and it's 1-0 good guys after one. Oh, and if it looked familiar, it should - it's not unlike one he scored the other night against the Jets, and here's one he scored just three weeks ago against Calgary:
