Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Gets on scoreboard with first points of 2016-17

Ovechkin scored a power-play goal and dished an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Colorado.

The man-advantage tally was classic Ovie -- a cannon from the left circle. He'd gone without a point in the first two games, but you're not gonna keep the NHL's top sniper down for long. Now that he's off the schneid, the Russian superstar can be expected to start pouring it in as he chases his fourth straight 50-goal season.
