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.
Just a note: Sam Hendren of WOSU-FM's Weekend Edition asked me to come on the program and talk about the Jackets. My interview will air at 8:33 and 10:33 tomorrow morning!-Matt
Administrative note: No Shrapnel today due to Hell Cold. Please enjoy our coverage of tonight's game as scheduled!-Matt

Editorial note: I got home from last night's game ready to write a recap, but when I came in the door one of my cats had fallen and badly hurt herself. After taking her to the vet, it was determined that the humane choice was to put her down at 8am this morning. I'll be back to talk hockey tomorrow, but I really don't have it in me to say much else right now.-Matt.
