Capitals star Alex Ovechkin keeps ice spray clear of Canadiens flag kids

MONTREAL - This time, Alex Ovechkin kept his spray of ice well clear of the kids with the Montreal Canadiens flags.

As he led his Washington Capitals onto the ice before Monday night's playoff game, Ovechkin skated hard and jammed on the brakes, but sent the snow into boards in front of his team's bench.

On Washington's last visit, the Caps' star upset some by spraying one of the two boys on skates in Montreal gear who wave Canadiens' flags beside the rink entrance near the benches.

Ovechkin said later he meant no harm and that it would give the boy something to remember.
