Seen and heard last night at RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C.:

Ovechkin watch

Alex Ovechkin’s first-period assist moved him into seventh place on the all-time list for points by a rookie with 96 and into fourth place in Caps history in scoring in a season.

Key player

Carolina center Josef Vasicek came off injured reserve to score a pair of key goals and assist on another to pace the Hurricanes.

Seen & heard

Defenseman Bryan Muir left the team in Ottawa on Sunday and flew home to Annapolis to be with his wife as she gave birth to the couple’s second son, Griffin. “Made it with a half-hour to spare,” Muir said. He caught a plane early yesterday to Raleigh in time for the morning skate.

“That’s the part I like,” coach Glen Hanlon said. “He didn’t miss a single practice.”
