Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin scored twice on Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.
Insight: Ovechkin scored on the power play to put Washington up, 2-0, and then answered a Blue Jacket score with an even-strength goal late in the first period. Ovechkin had eight shots on goal and has 16 points this season.
 
11/4/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin had two assists in Tuesday's overtime loss to Calgary.
Insight: He also had seven shots on goal, which is a nice sight for owners, but was also -1 on the night. Ovechkin is still one of the top players in the game.
 
10/18/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin scored on his shootout attempt to seal a Washington victory on Saturday night.
Insight: Ovechkin was the third Capital to score in the shootout, and goalie Justin Peters stopped Panthers' Jossi Jokinen just prior to Ovechkin's score. Therefore, the victory was sealed. Ovechkin had two shots and seven hits in the game.
 
10/16/2014 9:56:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin continued his hot start to the season Thursday against the Devils.
Insight: He scored his fifth goal of the season and now has six points through four games. It goes without saying, Ovechkin is easily a top-five fantasy option.
 
10/14/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin scored twice and had an assist in a loss to the Sharks on Tuesday.
Insight: San Jose won the game, 6-5, in the shootout. Ovechkin scored towards the end of the second period and then on the power play in the third as the Capitals rallied from two behind to earn a point. Ovechkin has four goals this season.
 
10/12/2014 12:36:00 AM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin put two pucks in the back of the net on seven shots Saturday night.
Insight: You didn't think he would be held scoreless for long did you? He led the NHL with 386 shots and 51 goals last season.
 
10/4/2014 5:33:00 PM
Description: Capitals right winger Alex Ovechkin will likely be a more complete player this season.
Insight: That doesn't mean Ovechkin is all-the-sudden going to play exceptional defense, but with new head coach Barry Trotz, Ovechkin should at least make his embarrassing minus-35 in plus/minus more respectable. Even though it was "a horrible" year for the Russian, failing to make the playoffs and win at the Olympics, he still led the NHL with 386 shots and 51 goals. He has an agrument to go No. 1 overall due to the lack of depth at right wing.
 
5/22/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Alex Ovechkin was back on the ice for Russia's quarterfinal game against France Thursday at the IIHF World Hockey Championships. SOURCE: IIHFworlds2014.com
Insight: Ovechkin injured his knee early in the tournament but only ended up missing one game. He felt encouraged by his performance and could shed the knee brace he wore today for the semifinals.
 
5/18/2014 4:17:00 PM
Description: Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin suffered a right leg injury Sunday while representing his native Russia at the IIHF World Championships. SOURCE: Stephen Whyno, Canadian Press
Insight: He had to be helped off the ice. Until we know the full extent of Ovechkin's injury it's tough to speculate on how much time he might miss. The reigning Hart Trophy winner has led the league in goals each of the last two seasons.
 
4/14/2014 4:34:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Alex Ovechkin finished with an NHL-high 51 goals this season.
Insight: Ovechkin reached 50 goals for the first time since 2010 and the fifth time in his career. He also had 28 assists, 386 shots on goal and 48 penalty minutes, so fantasy owners were able to overlook his -35 rating (third-worst in NHL).
 
4/8/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Washington right wing Alex Ovechkin reached the 50-goal plateau for the fifth time in his career Tuesday in a win over St. Louis.
Insight: It's the first time Ovechkin has reached 50 goals since 2010. He's one of five players to reach that threshold in the last five seasons (Corey Perry, Evgeni Malkin, Steven Stamkos and Sidney Crosby).
 
3/25/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin had his first two-goal game since March 1 Tuesday against the Kings.
Insight: Ovechkin had 30 goals in his first 34 games, but he's slowed down with 18 in his past 35. That still puts him just two goals away from 50 and 11 ahead of anyone else.
 
3/14/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin broke a four-game points drought with a goal Friday against the Canucks.
Insight: Ovechkin had 30 goals in his first 34 games, but he's slowed down with 15 in his past 30. His 45 goals, 68 points and 337 SOG in 64 games this season helps us forgive his putrid -29.

Description: Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin dominated the Bruins Saturday at TD Garden.
Insight: Both of Ovechkin's goals came on the power play. Saturday marked his seventh multi-goal effort of the season. Ovechkin's 43 goals this year are 11 more than anyone else in the NHL (Phil Kessel and Joe Pavelski are tied with 32 each).
 
2/21/2014 9:03:00 PM
Description: The Olympic break is ending but Washington right wing Alex Ovechkin is still in Russia tending to his ailing father. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: Ovechkin's father recently underwent heart surgery. It's unknown if Ovechkin will be back in time for next Thursday's game against Florida. The three-time Hart Trophy winner leads the NHL with 40 goals in 2013-14.
 
2/11/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin is expected to team up with Evgeni Malkin and Alexander Semin on Russia's first line.
