Whether Ovechkin heard the derisive chants that greeted him every time there were 8 minutes left -- matching his uniform number -- in each period or not, they certainly didn't knock him off his game.
Despite diminished minutes in the playoffs, Ovechkin is still every bit as dangerous during crunch time.
"Ovi is a team guy and he is cheering his guys on," Capitals coach Dale Hunter said. "He knows what these guys are going through at the end of the game. They've got to go out and slide and block shots. He appreciates that.
"The one thing is that he has been real fresh for the power play."
Mike Knuble and Jason Chimera scored first-period goals for the Capitals, who will host the next two games of the series. Washington is trying to repeat its first-round feat when it lost the series opener but rallied to beat Boston in seven games. The Capitals have earned four of their five wins in this postseason on the road, but are only 1-2 at home.
"We probably weren't very fond of our home games against Boston. That's one thing that we want to improve on," goalie Braden Holtby said. "I'm very confident in our group here, and I'm confident that I will be there to back them up."
