Rangers vs. Capitals - Game 6 Video Ice Chips
Alex Ovechkin played more than 19 minutes in Game 5, so ice time wasn’t an issue, but the captain still didn’t manage a shot on goal. It’s just the second time that has happened in his playoff career and the first time since Game 1 against Montreal in 2010. - Washington Times

New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi said Alex Ovechkin made contact with his head when the Washington Capitals’ star leaped to deliver an open-ice hit in Saturday’s 3-2 victory. Ovechkin was assessed a minor penalty for charging on the play, which occurred midway through the second period. Girardi was not injured. It was unclear whether NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan planned to review the hit or was considering supplemental discipline, which can range from a warning to a $2,500 fine or suspension. In January, Shanahan banned Ovechkin for three games after ruling the Capitals’ captain “launched” himself and hit Pittsburgh defenseman Zbynek Michalek in the head along the boards.
Capitals Coach Dale Hunter said it was “incidental contact.” - Washington Post
