WASHINGTON (AP) Alex Ovechkin knows the Washington Capitals have plenty of fans back in Russia.”Over there lots of friends Anaheim Ducks Hats Womens , lots of people watch the games,” Ovechkin said of his countrymen. ”It’s been huge.”He is also huge in Barrie, Ontario, where projected top-five draft pick Andrei Svechnikov has been watching Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov serve as inspirations for young Russian players and fans on this run to the Stanley Cup Final. The native of Siberian city Barnaul got to meet his fellow Russians on Monday morning and got an up-close view of their dominance in Game 4 that night.”(Ovechkin) and Kuzy and Orlov, these guys just famous in hockey world,” Svechnikov said. ”I am very happy.”Ovechkin, Kuznetsov and Orlov are making plenty of young Russian players and fans happy. They are just one win away from winning the Stanley Cup. Svechnikov admired smooth-skating, high-scoring Hall of Fame winger Pavel Bure growing up, and now watches in amazement at what Kuznetsov does on the ice with his skill – not to mention his bird-flapping celebrations.”Great skater. Every time wants to be involved, hungry every time. Very smart player. A lot of skill,” Svechnikov said of Kuznetsov, who leads the playoffs in scoring and added four assists in a 6-2 win over Vegas. ”He just like star Custom Anaheim Ducks Jerseys , you know? He can do whatever he want.”The joy of Ovechkin, Kuznetsov and Orlov is being watched closely not only in Washington but back home where they’re big fan favorites.”A lot of people watching it because three Russian players in Washington and obviously Ovi big superstar in the world and everybody follow,” Orlov said. ”A lot of fans, a lot of kids enjoy his game.”The Capitals could have the most Russians on a Cup champion in the salary-cap era. The 2004 Tampa Bay Lightning were backstopped to their first franchise title by Nikolai Khabibulin, and the Detroit Red Wings’ Russian Five in the 1990s shined a spotlight on all the talent coming out of the old Soviet system.After Evgeni Malkin was the only Russian player on the Pittsburgh Penguins’ back-to-back Cup champions the past two seasons, this is another showcase of this generation of talent. Playoff leading scorer Kuznetsov and leading goal-scorer Ovechkin are also the top candidates to follow Malkin as just the second Russian to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.”Ovi has been a staple since he’s come into the league. Kuzy is a little newer,” coach Barry Trotz said. ”People don’t really know him as well as Ovi. You’re seeing the talent of Kuzy. You’ve seen the greatness of Ovi over the course of his career to this point. I think Kuzy is just getting better and better.”The 26-year-old Kuznetsov is reluctant to talk about himself or any other individual player, but he knows this is special for Ovechkin, who is 32 and has been waiting 13 seasons for this with nine previous early playoff exits to his name.”Every Russian guy back home pretty happy for him because that’s huge,” Kuznetsov said. ”That’s a long time.”Ovechkin wished Svechnikov good luck later this month at the NHL draft, where he was the No. 1 pick back in 2004. A short conversation at a morning skate was enough to leave Svechnikov beaming.”Just famous guy – everybody knows him and everybody watch him,” Svechnikov said. ”It’s just an honor to have met with him.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals— DALLAS (AP) — Ben Bishop bought enough time for Dallas to rally for its fourth consecutive victory.Bishop made a season-high 41 saves and Miro Heiskanen and Brett Ritchie scored in the third period, sending the Stars to a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.“Ben Bishop’s the reason why we won that game www.coyotesproshop.com ,” coach Jim Montgomery said. “We were bad in the first, and thank God, Ben Bishop wasn’t.”The game was tied at 1 before Heiskanen scored from the top of the right faceoff circle 4:38 into the third. Ritchie then got his second of the season at 6:26, making it 3-1 Dallas.“The last period was good for us, and it was a fun way to win this game,” Heiskanen said.Evander Kane and Logan Couture scored for San Jose. Erik Karlsson had two assists, and Martin Jones stopped 27 shots.The Sharks were coming off consecutive wins against Montreal and Carolina.“We wanted to build on that,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “I loved our first period. Bishop, I thought, kept it from being two or three at the end of the first.”Kane said his team was too relaxed.“One-goal leads, two-goal leads, teams are coming back on us because we’re not finishing,” he said. “We need to ramp up the intensity.”The Sharks dominated the first period Arizona Coyotes T-Shirts Womens , outshooting Dallas 13-5. San Jose nearly scored 1:14 into the game when Timo Meier’s shot from the slot hit the right post.At 9:22, Kane took a pass from Karlsson on the inside edge of the left circle and slid the puck inside the left post for his eighth goal of the season.On a 2-on-0 break at the end of a Dallas power play early in the second period, Bishop trapped the puck under his pads. It trickled into the net, but the play had been whistled dead.The Stars tied the game at 14:05. Roman Polak sent the puck out of the Dallas end and Mattias Janmark picked it up at the San Jose blue line for a breakaway. He beat Jones for his second goal of the season.“We have the 2-on-0 and the disallowed goal at one end,” DeBoer said, “and they get a breakaway at the other end and we leave the period 1-1 instead of going up 2-nothing.”Dallas had a 2-on-1 break that put the puck in the net with 2:14 left in the second, but the officials ruled Jamie Benn had kicked it in.Couture tipped in a shot by Karlsson 31 seconds after Ritchie’s goal. But San Jose was shut out the rest of the way.NOTES: Dallas C Martin Hanzal played for the first time since undergoing offseason spine surgery. “It was probably the hardest game of my life,” the 14-year veteran said. “I felt like the first period I was a little bit nervous. I thought I got better in the second, and the third I was out of gas.” … Sharks C Joe Thornton played in his 1,514th game, tying Steve Yzerman for 18th on the NHL career list. … Kane’s goal was his first in nine games.UP NEXTSharks: Complete a quick two-game trip at Arizona on Saturday.Stars: Begin a four-game trip Sunday at Vegas. They visit San Jose on Thursday.
