Kempny-Gudas pairing was on the ice for the Domi breakaway (2:03) and Byron breakaway (5:17). Gudas' break took places after the second one.
Radko Gudas sat for more than 9 minutes in the middle of the first period (5:27 to14:34) . Played 4 shifts for total of 3:08 in the period.
Back to Ovechkin's 699th goal (41st of season). He came close to scoring off that faceoff play with Backstrom (and one from the other circle) a few times on the road trip and just missed net or goalie made save. Felt like a matter of time before one of those went in.
