CBJ strategy: Letting Ovechkin rip shots on power play


Scene: Washington Capitals power play, Alex Ovechkin standing alone in the left circle, no Blue Jacket within four stick lengths.

Panic-inducing? Not for the Blue Jackets. It was by design. "You have to give up something on that power play, and that just happens to be the shot," Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney said.

via the Dispatch, this doesn't seem like the best strategy, although at least in a limited showing, it might be working? Is this crazy?
