  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Wins another Maurice Richard Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/22/16) Ovechkin earned the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy on Wednesday, NHL.com reports.

    Also known as the Maurice Richard Trophy, this hardware piece is given to the NHL's scoring leader from each regular-season campaign. Ovi notched exactly 50 goals in 2015-16, marking the fourth consecutive year -- and the seventh time in his career -- that he's been tops in the league in that category.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Ends playoffs with 12 points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/16) Ovechkin notched two power-play helpers, six shots on goal, two PIM and four hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins in Game 6.

    Ending the postseason with 12 points (Ovie's second-best mark of his career in the playoffs), the star Russian was unable to carry his team to a Game 7 with a shot at the Eastern Conference Finals. Ovechkin has now failed to reach that stage in the playoffs in 11 seasons with the Caps, which naturally puts a question mark over the head of the 2004 No. 1 pick. Still, the 30-year-old finished the regular season with his seventh 50-goal campaign and he'll come in hungry for redemption next year.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Cashes in with power-play blast in Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Ovechkin opened the scoring with a power-play rocket and added an assist in Saturday's Game 5 win over the Penguins.

    A clutch performance from the captain, who helped the Caps stave off elimination and force a Game 6. Ovechkin, who fired six shots on goal Saturday, has been credited with 20 shots on goal over his last three outings and is up to five goals in 11 postseason games. Washington will need another big game from him Monday if they hope to force a Game 7.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Fires seven shots in vain

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/5/16) Ovechkin took a team-high seven shots, but his efforts proved to be in vain as tin Capitals fell 3-2 Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

    Ovechkin was aggressive all night, but still finished with a minus-1 rating as he ultimately failed to break through against goaltender Matt Murray. He has fired off 21 shots in this series, but has just one goal to show for his efforts.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Snaps five-game goal drought in Game 3 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/2/16) Ovechkin scored a goal, recorded an assist, and fired seven shots on net in Monday's Game 3 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Ovie snapped a five-game goal drought with a lethal wrister that beat rookie netminder Matt Murray clean above the shoulder. He also received a whopping 24:21 of ice time but ultimately wasn't able to help the Caps complete their comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Through nine playoff games, Ovechkin now has eight points and an insane 43 shots on goal, and he'll need to play a significant role again Wednesday as the Caps push to even up the series in Game 4.
