How Do You Stop The Washington Capials’ Power Play?

Before last night's win in Anaheim,(Caps had 2 PP and one was the game winner from Ovechkin), here are their recent power play stats via Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington,

The Capitals are 12 for 31 [38.7 percent] on the power play in their last 10 games and have scored a power-play goal in four of their last five games.

Washington scored two power-play goals on Sunday against Toronto, marking the 17th time this season the Caps have scored two or more power-play goals in a game. Washington is 13-3-1 this season when scoring two or more power-play goals in a game.

The Caps rank second in the NHL on the power play at 23.7 percent. 

So how do you stop it?  Do you key on Ovechkin and leave others open or do you just play a standard penalty kill and hope for the best?

Below, watch Ovechkin's game winning power play goal against the Ducks last night.
