It was just another night at the office for the Ducks' shut-down line. It just happened to involve defending the NHL's leading goal scorer and marquee attraction.
As has been the case most of this season, the line of Ryan Kesler, Andrew Cogliano and Jakob Silfverberg was took on the opposition's top line Monday night against Washington. That would be Alex Ovechkin and his 41 goals, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, who were held scoreless in the Capitals' shootout win.
Ovechkin did not put a shot on goal until nearly five minutes into the third period, although he finished with five shots.
