Ovechkin scores another power play goal but it is not enough to keep Caps from falling in Dallas
Question of the Day
DALLAS — Alex Chiasson is off to a fast start in the NHL.
It was the second goal this season for Chiasson, who has eight in nine career games. Still, the 23-year-old right wing said he doesn’t think much about scoring goals.
“I just play my game. That’s my main focus. As long as the team wins, that’s all I care about,” he said.
Alex Ovechkin scored in the first period for Washington. Erik Cole tied it 3:35 later.
“We had lots of chances — lots of crossbars and posts,” Ovechkin said.
Before joining the Stars last April, Chiasson had 36 goals in 109 games at Boston University and 14 in 66 American Hockey League games. Dallas said he became the first NHL player to score eight or more goals through his first nine games since Rob Gaudreau in 1992-93, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The only other active player who started as well was Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne.
“He finds the right place,” Ruff said. “He needs a little of that magic to rub off on the other guys.”
It was the fourth goal in three games this season for Ovechkin, who entered tied with teammate Mikhail Grabovski for the NHL scoring lead.
The Capitals came in with a league-best 56 percent success rate (5 for 9) on power plays. They were 1 for 3 against the Stars.
