  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores in finale

    Ovechkin scored a goal on his only shot in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Ovechkin opened the scoring late in the first period, deflecting a Dylan McIlrath shot past Samuel Ersson to put Washington ahead 1-0. It's the 31st goal of the year for Ovechkin, who scored five times in his final eight games of the regular season. The 38-year-old winger will conclude his 19th NHL campaign with 65 points (31 goals, 34 assists) across 79 games.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Sets new NHL record

    Ovechkin scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Red Wings.

    His tally late in the second period was classic Ovie, as he snapped the puck past Alex Lyon from the faceoff circle to the netminder's right after a Detroit turnover in the neutral zone. It was Ovechkin's 30th goal of the season, the 18th time in his career he's reached that mark -- setting a new NHL record in the process, and breaking the tie he shared with Mike Gartner at 17 such seasons. Ovechkin creeps ever closer to the Great One, with his 852 career goals putting him 42 behind Wayne Gretzky for the all-time record.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Lights lamp twice in loss

    Ovechkin scored two goals in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    The future Hall of Famer struck twice in the first period even though the Capitals were outshot 18-6 in the frame, but the ice remained tilted the rest of the night. Ovechkin is doing his best to get Washington into the playoffs, scoring 11 goals in the last 11 games, but he isn't getting much help. The 38-year-old is just one tally away from setting a new NHL record with the 18th 30-goal campaign of his career.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Strikes on power play

    Ovechkin scored a goal on a team-high eight shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.

    Ovechkin was responsible for the Caps' lone tally in the loss, beating Alex Nedeljkovic on a power play to cut Pittsburgh's lead to 3-1 in the third period. The 38-year-old Ovechkin had gone four games without a goal prior to Thursday after scoring eight times in his previous five contests. He's up to 27 goals and 60 points through 72 games this season.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores twice Sunday

    Ovechkin scored two goals on five shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over Winnipeg.

    Ovechkin has scored in five straight games for a combined eight goals on 18 shots. A slow start to the season has the world-class winger sitting with just 26 goals in 67 games this year. Still, he trails Wayne Gretzky for the all-time lead by 46 goals, a mark he could reach next year with a strong finish to the 2023-24 campaign and a bounce-back effort in 2024-25.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Goal streak at four games

    Ovechkin produced a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 7-6 shootout win over the Hurricanes.

    The 38-year-old still has a lot left in the tank. Ovechkin has found the back of the net in four straight games, scoring six goals during that surge. Through 11 contests in March, he's delivered eight goals and 13 points as the Capitals push for a playoff spot, with most of that production (five goals, four helpers) coming with on the power play.

    Ovechkin scored two goals, one on the power play, in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Matched up with his heir apparent as the NHL's premier goal-scorer in Auston Matthews, Ovechkin matched the Toronto star with a two-goal performance, but he got a lot less help from his teammates. The 38-year-old Ovechkin is up to 23 goals on the season and 845 for his career, putting him exactly 50 away from surpassing Wayne Gretzky and claiming the all-time NHL record.

    Ovechkin scored a pair of goals in Monday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

    Ovechkin extended Washington's lead to 2-0 on a second-period power play, directing a Max Pacioretty feed past Dustin Wolf for his 20th goal of the season. He'd add a second tally (also with the man advantage) later in the frame, beating Wolf with his patented one-timer from the circle. The 38-year-old Ovechkin has reached the 20-goal threshold in each of his last 19 seasons, tying a record held by Hall-of-Famers Gordie Howe and Brendan Shanahan. Ovechkin now has 13 goals and 24 points in his last 22 contests -- he's up to 52 points (21 goals, 31 assists) through 64 games this season.

    Ovechkin scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Canucks.

    Ovechkin was relatively quiet in the contest -- his goal was his only shot on net. That tally, off a feed from Connor McMichael, stood as the game-winning goal, Ovechkin's third of the year. He's up to 19 goals, 50 points, 220 shots on net, 122 hits and a minus-21 rating through 63 contests overall. While the season numbers aren't great, the legendary winger has seven points over eight outings in March.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Streak ends in 1,400th NHL game

    Ovechkin played in his 1,400th NHL game Saturday and went without a point in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    His 10-game point streak ended in the loss, but he still had four shots and four hits. Ovechkin is the 41st player to hit that game plateau and the 10th to do it with one team. He has 16 goals and 42 points in 53 contests this season.

    The point extended his point streak to 10 games (14 points; eight goals, six assists). Ovechkin's goal pace has dropped this season, but he does have 42 points in 52 games, so he's helping his team in different ways than he has in past seasons.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: First three-point game of season

    Ovechkin scored two goals and added a helper in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Devils.

    Ovechkin was held scoreless in the first two periods but he would not be denied in the third. With the Capitals only up 2-1 heading into the final frame, he added a primary assist on Dylan Strome's lone goal and then added two more of his own, including a power-play marker with only 33 seconds left for his 16th of the season. Over the past nine games, Ovechkin has been an offensive juggernaut for the Capitals, tallying an impressive eight goals and five assists. This is an improvement for the 38-year sniper as he has struggled to score for much of the season.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Extends streak with power-play goal

He's up to 14 goals, nine coming in his last 20 outings, and 37 points through 49 games this season.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Goal streak up to five games

    Ovechkin scored a goal on three shots and blocked two shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Ovechkin extended his goal streak to five games, though his tally Sunday was more of a lucky bounce than a vintage laser. He's also gotten on the scoresheet in six straight contests, racking up five goals and three assists in that span. It's a welcome sight for fantasy managers who have waited for the 38-year-old to turn things around. He's up to 13 goals, 36 points, 167 shots on net, 82 hits and a minus-15 rating through 48 appearances.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Four-game goal spree

    Ovechkin scored a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 3-0 victory over Boston.

    Ovechkin moved ahead of Wayne Gretzky for the most empty-net goals in NHL history with his 57th. The 38-year-old Ovechkin has four goals and three assists during a five-game point streak. He has also lit the lamp in four consecutive contests. Ovie has 12 tallies and 35 points through 47 appearances this campaign. He's finding ways to contribute, but there continue to be concerns that his best goal days are behind him.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Finally warming up

    Ovechkin scored a power-play goal in a 4-2 loss to Florida on Thursday.

    It was classic Ovie -- a power-play snipe from his office on the left circle. After a slow start, he has 13 points (five goals, eight assists) in his past 13 games. He has a goal in each of his last three games and five points on a four-game point streak. Ovechkin has 833 career snipes to his name on his march to try to move past Wayne Gretzky (894) on the all-time goal list.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Two points in Saturday's loss

    Ovechkin scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Stars.

    The 38-year-old winger was the main reason the Capitals even earned a point from the game. With his team down 4-2, Ovie blasted a shot past Jake Oettinger with exactly two minutes left in the third period, then helped set up Dylan Strome for the tying tally 77 seconds later. Ovechkin has found a groove over the last month, and he'll head into the All-Star break with three goals and 11 points over the last 11 games, including two goals and two assists on the power play.
