  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Stripped of power-play helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/17) Ovechkin ultimately had a power-play assist taken away after the NHL reviewed Washington's third scoring play from Thursday's win over the Flames; Nicklas Backstrom got credit for the goal, with Kevin Shattenkirk and T.J. Oshie picking up the assists.

    Ovechkin still managed a season-high 11 shots -- scoring a power-play goal on the last one -- and his other helper stayed on the board since that was a clear dish to T.J. Oshie, who acknowledged the slick pass. It's nice to see Ovechkin looking to finish strong; however, he's an unreachable 21 goals away from the 50 he notched last season en route to his fourth consecutive Rocket Richard Trophy.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Three points, 11 shots in win over Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Ovechkin fired a whopping 11 shots on goal Tuesday against Calgary, resulting in a power-play goal and two assists (one on the power play).

    The goals haven't been getting through as often as usual for Ovechkin lately, as this was just his second goal in his last 14 contests; the Russian winger's taken 56 shots in that span. You've got to figure he's in for better luck, as Ovechkin hasn't posted a shooting percentage this low (10.5) since 2010-11. Nonetheless, thanks to that poor fortune, he has basically no chance at his fourth consecutive 50-goal season -- in fact, we're still waiting for him to hit 30.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Ends goal drought in win over Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/17) Ovechkin scored a goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Wild.

    Facing Minnesota's Devan Dubnyk may not seem like the natural situation for Ovechkin to snap his 10-game goal drought, but hey, it worked. He collected just four scattered assists and took a modest 32 shots on net over that stretch, but this is Ovechkin -- barring injury, any minor skid can be explained away as statistical noise in the career of a future Hall of Famer.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Tallies assist Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/17) Ovechkin notched an assist and added four shots on goal Sunday in Anaheim.

    This is Ovechkin's second assist in nine games, although his chances have been frequent. The captain has fired 32 shots on goal in this stretch and clocked substantial power-play minutes. Even during these slumps, he makes himself valuable in other ways -- adding 30 hits over these nine games.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Picks up two assists against Philly

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Ovechkin registered two assists without a shot on net during Wednesday's win over the Flyers.

    It was just the second game all season that Ovechkin failed to register a shot on net, but fantasy owners will overlook the rarity and happily take the two helpers. The veteran sniper has chipped in more assists this season, and there's a solid chance he tops 30 for the first time since the 2010-11 campaign. Don't overthink it, though, his 27 goals still rank seventh in the league, and he's a heater away from being in the thick of the race.
