    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores again in win

    Ovechkin scored on a power play in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators. That's now 31 goals on the season for Ovie, who continues to dominate the ice, and should continue to put up superstar numbers. The lower-body injury is obviously a thing of the past, which means the 30-year-old is a no-brainer starter in all formats.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores game-winner in return

    Ovechkin made his return to the ice after a brief absence Thursday and potted the game-winning goal with 2:40 remaining to ensure a 3-2 win over the Islanders. Ovie was forced to miss Tuesday's game after sitting out the All-Star Game with a lower-body injury, and the Caps basically punted that one, starting backup goalie Philipp Grubauer and taking a rare loss. But clearly the ailment was no big deal, as the superstar winger has now drawn within one goal of clearing 30 for the 11th time in his 11 NHL seasons.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Will play Thursday

    Ovechkin (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Islanders. Ovechkin missed the All-Star Game because of the lower-body issue, forcing him to skip the Caps' first game of the second half as well due to a mandatory one-game suspension. It appears the rest was enough for the star winger, and he'll rejoin the lineup Thursday to face an Islanders club that allowed 3.11 goals per game in January.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Expected to play Thursday

    Ovechkin (lower body) expects to be ready to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. By rule, Ovechkin will need to sit out of the first game following the All-Star break due to his missing the All-Star Game, making Thursday the star winger's first eligible date to return. While the team should update his status again as the contest approaches, it certainly appears he's on track to dress.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Will miss All-Star Game with lower body injury

    Ovechkin will sit out the All-Star game with a lower body injury and will be forced to miss the Capitals' first game following the break, the club announced Wednesday. Because of NHL rules, Ovechkin will be ineligible for the Capitals' contest Tuesday against Florida. It doesn't sound like this is a major injury, as Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said "we believe it is better if he uses this time to heal and ideally be completely healthy for the duration of the season." He is officially day-to-day, but he should be fully ready to go by Washington's second post-break game Thursday, February 4 against the Islanders.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores 500th career goal in win

    Ovechkin potted a pair of goals -- the first of which was the 500th of his career -- in Sunday's win over the Senators. Ovechkin became the 43rd player to join the 500 club and the fifth fastest, needing just 801 games to reach the mark. No. 8 has lit the lamp five times in the last three games and is now tied for the league lead with 25 goals.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores two more goals Saturday

    Ovechkin scored two goals -- including the game-winner in overtime -- in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rangers. With the pair of snipes, Ovie is now one shy of becoming the 43rd player to join the 500-goal club. With 24 goals, 37 points, a plus-19 rating and 205 shots on goal this season, Ovechkin has been his usual dominant self and is the main reason, along with star netminder Braden Holtby, why the Capitals are the top team in the NHL with 65 points.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Snipes one past netminder

    Ovechkin scored his 22nd goal of the season against the Islanders on Thursday. Ovechkin has been lighting the lamp, scoring five goals in his last six contests. The 30-year-old will look to get the three tallies he needs to reach the 500 career goal milestone in his next two matchups against the Rangers and the Senators.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Nets 21st goal in loss to Canes

    Ovechkin recorded his 21st goal of the season in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes. Just another day at the office for Ovie, who despite the loss, continues to power his way towards another possible 50-goal, 80-point season. There's not much else you can say about him at this point - at 30 years of age, he continues to be one of the elite snipers in the game.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Hits 20 goals for 11th straight season

    Ovechkin scored two more goals in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo, marking his 11th consecutive 20-goal season. He also fired 10 shots on goal. Reaching the 20-goal plateau barely qualifies as news for Ovie, since the lowest total he's recorded in any NHL season is 32. The man is a goal-scoring, shot-taking machine -- and apparently a stud again in the plus/minus category with a plus-18 this year. Ovechkin also ranks 16th in the NHL with 105 hits, further cementing himself as the total package both on the ice and in the fantasy arena.
