      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Point per game production

      Ovechkin picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs. His current point streak stands at three games and three points (two goals, one assist). Ovechkin has 22 points in the same number of games and six in his last six. But most impressively, he's sitting at plus-12 in just 22 games played. That' s huge improvement from the minus-35 he accumulated two seasons ago. His team game really is improving and that only makes Ovie more and more valuable.

      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Records power-play goal Wednesday

      Ovechkin netted a goal on the man advantage, plus he delivered five hits in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Jets. Ovechkin had plenty of real estate on the ice while working on the point during the power play and once again made it look easy, accepting a pass from John Carlson and flicking the puck high into the net. Interestingly enough, it was only his second power-play goal of the season, as 85 percent of his points have come at even strength thus far in 2015-16.

      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Finally breaks record, but in losing effort

      Ovechkin snapped his four-game point drought with a goal in Thursday's loss to Dallas, giving him sole possession of the most career goals (484) by a Russian-born player. Finally, almost two weeks and 26 shots after his last goal, Ovechkin found twine and snapped his tie with Sergei Federov. He may have been gripping the stick a little too tightly for a bit there, but now that he's over it, expect the points to start pouring in again. At just 30 years old, Ovechkin's on track to make his way into the top 20 all-time goal scorers within the next three years, with an eye on finishing his career in the top five.

      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Has quiet game in record chase

      Ovechkin had no points and just two shots despite the Capitals putting up five goals in Thursday's win over the Flyers, leaving him in a tie with Sergei Fedorov for the most goals by a Russian-born player. On the bright side, he did go plus-1. It's nice that Ovechkin doesn't want to take the sheen off Fedorov's recent Hall of Fame induction by breaking his record right afterward, but Ovie's fantasy owners would surely like to see him break through sooner rather than later. Nonetheless, he's had an elite season up until these last two scoreless games, and at just 30 years old, Ovechkin will most likely eventually leave Fedorov hundreds of goals behind.

      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Comes up empty on 15 shots Tuesday

      Ovechkin fired 15 shots on goal Tuesday night against the Red Wings, though he was unable to pass Sergei Federov for the most career goals scored by a Russian-born NHL player. Ovechkin accounted for nearly 40 percent of the Capitals' shots in the contest, but Wings goalie Petr Mrazek put up a wall and recorded his first shutout of the season. It's obvious Ovi is hungry for that gaudy record, and he'll have another chance to secure it Thursday against the Flyers.

      Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores goal while falling down Thursday

      Ovechkin scored his seventh goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Bruins. With a loose puck in front of Tuukka Rask, Ovechkin was able to score while falling to the ice. It was one of the goals were used to seeing Ovie score, as he lit the lamp for a second consecutive game. When Ovechkin is hot, he's hot, so expect more of the same Saturday against the Leafs.

Ovie has found himself on the scoresheet in eight of his nine games this season and he has 12 points (five goals, seven assists) overall. The Caps are a powerful squad and Ovechkin appears to finally be turning into a key driver of that success. They have won every game in which he's scored and lost the one he didn't.

The top-line sniper sits fourth in the NHL with 32 shots on goal and has been a point producing machine thus far. With five goals scored in just six games, Ovechkin is simply a must-start every single game.

      Ovechkin scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over Carolina. Ovechkin had been rather quiet until he scored Washington's final goal of an impressive rout over division rival Carolina. With three goals and an assist in his first three games, Ovechkin continues to be a multi-category stud that should be in the lineup every night.
