The fact that Alex Ovechkin scored two goals in the Capitals’ 4-1 win over the Bruins on Thursday night at TD Garden hardly comes as a shock.

The fact that the Bruins appeared to be outworked for most of the night in their own building, in the season opener and against one of their challengers for supremacy in the Eastern Conference should serve as a wake-up call right out of the 2009-10 gate.

The Bruins and Capitals both spoke after the season lid-lifter for both and here’s what it sounded like.

Julien said they gave Ovechkin way too many chances [2].

Thomas said the Bruins were outworked [5].

Patrice Bergeron said the Bruins can’t give talented teams like the Caps those breaks [6].

Alex Ovechkin said his Capitals played great [7].

Ovechkin said the Capitals wanted to be the Bruins in their building [8].
