Alex Ovechkin back to his old self
The Washington Capitals are back to their winning ways and they would not be where they are without their Captain Alex Ovechkin. Right now the Caps are third in the playoff seeding. Ovechkin has been more than hot lately he has been on fire with five goals in the past two games.
Many people wrote Ovechkin off earlier in the season saying that he lost his scoring touch and his legs. Ovechkin did get off to a slow start but so did most of the Caps who were simply not ready for the season.
Now Ovechkin is tied with Steven Stamkos for the league lead in goals with 25 goals. On Saturday, Ovechkin had three goals and an assist, for some that is a career game but Ovechkin has a few games like that a season.
The one thing Ovechkin is lacking are assist, he has 18, which is less than his goals scored.
Ovechkin is going to be a factor for the rest of the season. Teams have always tried to take him away but the more they try the more his teammates get chances. It is nice to see the Great Eight back to his scoring ways. Hopefully he can keep it up with a good post season run.
