The Montreal Canadiens' shut down of Alex Ovechkin has unleashed a monster.

Ovechkin posted three points (two goals, one assist) on Wednesday for his second multiple-point game of the playoffs and 12th of his postseason career.

Since being held without a point or shot in Game 1, Ovechkin has exploded offensively with four goals and four assists. The eight points are, by far, the winger's most successful response to a shotless effort .
