  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores in losing effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/17) Ovechkin potted his fourth goal of the playoffs in Thursday's 3-2 Game 1 loss to the Penguins.

    Ovechkin ended Marc-Andre Fleury's shutout bid with 1:43 to play in the second period after Sidney Crosby had also reached the four-goal mark by potting two earlier in the frame. The pair finds itself among a group of seven players tied for second in goals behind Jake Guentzel's five. Ovie had been held off the scoresheet in each of his last two appearances, and is still looking for his first assist of the postseason.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Avoids injury on shocking hit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/17) Ovechkin absorbed a controversial hit from Nazem Kadri late in the first period of Game 5's overtime win against the Maple Leafs on Friday night. He was seen clutching his left leg, but ultimately returned to start the second frame.

    Kadri leaned into Ovechkin and swept him right off his skates and into a flipping motion. The Toronto forward was whistled for a two-minute tripping penalty as a result of the nasty play, but Ovi would end up slashing him near his hip/ribs area as payback. Given the unabashed intensity displayed in this contest, we can only imagine what Game 6 will bring. Ovechkin, apparently none the worse for the wear, can help his team close out the series with a win Sunday.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Nets power-play goal in 2OT loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/15/17) Ovechkin scored his first goal of the postseason in Saturday's 4-3 double-overtime loss to Toronto. He fired nine shots.

    He had a chance to win it late in the first overtime period when he had a breakaway after leaving the penalty box. Ovie was caught from behind by Mitch Marner and stripped of the puck. Ovechkin's goal came on a sweet feed on the power play.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Posts five shots in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Ovechkin recorded five shots and a minus-1 rating in a 2-0 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

    The Washington captain suited up for the regular-season finale, which means he played all 82 games for the first time since 2007-08. However, that didn't help him post the numbers fantasy owners have grown accustomed to over the years. He failed to lead the league in goals for the first time since 2011-12 and posted 85 fewer shots on net than last season. In addition to fewer shots, his shooting percentage was down nearly 2.0 percent below his career average. That's a bad combination for a goal-scorer. Still, he was the only player in the league with 30 goals and 300 shots. Ovechkin was still plenty useful to fantasy owners -- he just didn't perform up to his usual high standards.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Three-game assist streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/8/17) Ovechkin's assist Saturday against the Bruins quietly extended his current point streak to three games and three assists.

    Ovie has 69 points in 81 games, but no goals in six. His goal total (33) has been somewhat disappointing, at least by Ovechkin standards. This is the first time in three seasons that he won't have hit the 50-goal mark. Still, the evolution of Ovie's game might just be the ticket to playing into June.
