first_imgNEW YORK — Alex Ovechkin moved closer to a major milestone, Braden Holtby kept up his stellar play and the Washington Capitals kept rolling.Ovechkin scored his 497th goal, Holtby stopped 34 shots and the NHL-leading Capitals beat the New York Islanders 4-1 on Jan. 7.Jason Chimera, Nate Schmidt and Nicklas Backstrom also scored to help Washington reach 63 points and become the first team with 30 wins. Holtby improved to 26-4-2, including 18-0-2 in his last 21 games.“Our goal is to finish as high as we can in the standings to give us the best opportunity in the playoffs,” Holtby said. “We were definitely tested, our blocking and our protection in front of the net.”Brock Nelson scored for New York and Jaroslav Halak made 34 saves in his first action in nearly three weeks. The Islanders had won four of six and fell to 7-2-2 against Metropolitan Division foes.It was the teams’ first meeting since the Capitals won a seven-game series with the Islanders in the first round of the playoffs last season.Ovechkin gave Washington a 2-0 lead with his 22nd goal of the season with 4:15 left in the first period. Islanders defenseman Adam Pelech coughed up the puck in the offensive zone and the Capitals’ Karl Alzner took it and skated up the right side. He dropped it to Ovechkin, and the 30-year-old Russian wristed a shot past Halak from the right faceoff circle.“We had a good start, that was the key,” Backstrom said. “We were aggressive and kept the puck in their zone and tried to work it deep in there. (It was) 2-0 after the first, that’s a good way to start off the game.”Nelson got the Islanders on the scoreboard 1:59 into the second. He took a pass from Ryan Strome in the high slot and fired a wrist shot past Holtby for his 14th of the season.“We have to be better out of the gate,” Islanders captain John Tavares said. “We were a little slow to start today. There’s a reason they’ve only lost a handful of times. … We have to raise our level and be better.”Ovechkin had a chance for No. 498 about 9 minutes into the second, but the puck clanged off the crossbar.Washington restored its two-goal lead later in the period, just after killing off an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Tom Wilson.Backstrom dropped a backhand pass to Schmidt, and he fired a one-timer from the top of the left faceoff circle for his second of the season with 4:06 to go.“Towards the end of the period it was really big,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. “Schmidt’s goal right after the big kill there where we got some good saves by Braden. I thought we managed the game really well.”Holtby has appeared in 33 of Washington’s 40 games so far.“He’s been real solid and when he hasn’t we sort of try to do the right things in front of him,” Trotz said. “He’s prepared every night. He’s a workhorse, he wants to be in the net every night and I think he gets mad when I pull him out of there. The more he plays the better he tracks the puck and the more patient he is in the net.”Backstrom capped the scoring with an empty-netter with 2:42 remaining in the game.Chimera put the Capitals ahead 5:45 into the game. Marcus Johansson grabbed the loose puck after taking the faceoff in the Islanders’ zone, skated behind the net and passed it to Chimera, who backed up and sent a shot that deflected up off Pelech’s stick and in off Halak.(VIN A.

Some of them express the different aspects of time while others speak of the ‘imagined’ and ‘conceived’ realities.This  melange intends to underline the ‘new art experience’ that has emerged in Indian art in recent times. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’A large number of senior artistes who have contributed to the Indian art in a significant way as well as members of later generation who have created a niche for themselves in the art world are participating in this show. Every artistes in the exhibition uses a different and unique language such as abstractions or figurative forms,  modernistic or post-modern expressions with their free-flowing, instantaneous aesthetics, and exploration and improvisation of new and unexpected spaces.The show has a well- arranged orchestration of lines, strokes, shapes, colours, textures, and figuration. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe works exhibited deal with the ideas of tradition and modernity. While working in the ‘modern’ and ‘global’ idioms of the day with utmost ease, most of the artistes seem quite aware of their tradition, their ‘rootedness’ in their original landscapes, and have made very meaningful use of being in the two worlds. How the tradition and the nativity meet the modernity and post-modernity, how the ‘local’ conjures up with the ‘global’ and what dimensions are thereby explored can beseen in this particular show.   This show also explicitly expresses the fusion of what is called Indian and Western in the artistic creations.Interestingly, most of the works show that the uniqueness of contemporary Indian art lies in the fact that in spite of it being an integral parat of the global art world, it has the strength of turning the colloquial and native experiences into universal ones. The works represented in this show conjure up a world in them and communicate something unique and authentic in different modes.Where: The Stainless Gallery, Mathura Road When: February 6 – 9 Timings: 11:00 am to 7:00 pmlast_img read more
