  • Ovechkin (COVID-19 protocols) will be unavailable for Washington's next four games after entering quarantine, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. While coach Peter Laviolette wouldn't commit to any of the four players under protocol returning as soon as available, it's hard to imagine Ovechkin being left out of the lineup if available. Through the first four games of the year, the Russian winger has tallied one goal on 13 shots and four assists. Without Ovechkin, Jakub Vrana will be the most likely player to jump up to the first line with Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson.

  • Ovechkin was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports. Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov and Ilya Samsonov were all placed into the league's COVID-19 protocol. This doesn't mean that Ovechkin has tested positive for the virus, but he's at least being monitored as a possible close contact. The Capitals' next scheduled game is Friday against the Sabres. Ovechkin is trending in the wrong direction for that contest.

  • Ovechkin scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Penguins. He also had six shots and four hits. Ovechkin banged home a loose puck on top of the crease to give Washington a 2-1 lead in the latter stages of the first period. He also drew the second assist on Nicklas Backstrom's power-play goal in the middle stanza. The 35-year-old is off to yet another fast start with four points through three games and shows no signs of slowing down after last year's 48-goal performance.

  • Ovechkin put up two assists in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres. Ovechkin remains a man on a mission to try to break the NHL goal record, but on Thursday, the sniper played disher instead. One of the apples came on the power play. Even at 35, Ovechkin remains a first-round fantasy talent and autoplay.

  • Ovechkin scored twice on four shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4. He added three hits and two PIM. It was vintage Ovechkin in the latter half of the game. The future Hall of Famer unleashed a rocket of a one-timer on the power play in the second period, tying the game at 2-2. Then he beat Semyon Varlamov with a wrister from the right faceoff dot to give the Capitals the lead just under four minutes into the final frame. It might be too little, too late for Washington, which trails the series 3-1, but Ovechkin has busted out with four goals and an assist over the last three games.
