Alex Ovechkin, who is riding a season-long four game goal scoring drought and hasn’t recorded a point in that stretch either, was skating with Mikhail Grabovski and Eric Fehr on the second line.

Things can only go up for Ovechkin as he looks to spark his offense. Being on the second line should have no bearing in his point production and could reward him with better defensive matchups. Also look for a potential boost for Grabovski on both 5-on-5 and special teams.
