Alexander Ovechkin scored an awesome solo goal on the 37th minute (starts @0:40). He went on the left wing, beat two opponents and shot the puck into the right corner.
Ovechkin gave a post game interview where he said that he was pleased how his team had played considering different time zones.
"We woke up at 5 am Moscow time and it's hard to play this early, very strange. But we managed to play well in defense. Yes, there were a lot of unnecessary penalties, but the team won and we are in a good mood going home. We were a bit upset letting them score one goal at the end, we wanted a shutout for our goalie, it's good for their psychic, especially for the young. Of course, we're upset."
