Last night from Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh:

BY THE NUMBERS

1,000 Games played by veteran Washington center Andrew Cassels.



QUOTABLE

“It doesn’t matter who it is — [Mario] Lemieux, [Sidney] Crosby, [Peter] Forsberg. We play hockey and if I have a chance to hit somebody, I hit them. It’s no big deal, whoever is in my way.”

— Alex Ovechkin, on body contact in the NHL.

PLAY OF THE GAME

Twelve minutes into the first, Crosby split the top Caps defensive pair and went in alone on Olie Kolzig. The goalie bit on the deke and Crosby’s goal made it 3-0.
