SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — When you’ve got the second-most goals in NHL history, you’re evidently permitted to bring a guest onto the ice for the All-Star Skills competition. That’s why there were two No. 8 Washington jerseys out there Friday night. Capitals star Alex Ovechkin took the ice with his Metropolitan Division teammates — and his oldest child, 4-year-old Sergei. Sergei, named for Ovechkin’s late brother, was wearing an Ovi Jr. jersey.
