Caps Insider: Alex Ovechkin is ‘wiser, more detailed’ during latest drought, says Barry Trotz

NEWARK — Friday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin annexed half of the practice rink for himself, working on one-timers from his power-play spot inside the left faceoff circle. But something seemed off. He flubbed two passes from defenseman Mike Green, the puck deadening on his stick rather than zooming away at its usual missile-like speed. Ovechkin checked the blade, as if to discern what was wrong, then whacked another shot wide of the net.Read full article >>

Second to None: What Happened to the Capitals' Other Scoring Line?

A look at a dramatic drop-off for half of the Caps' top-six Conventional wisdom holds that if you can stop Alex Ovechkin, you can stop the Washington Capitals. And there's obviously a good bit of truth to that - more than two-thirds of his career points have come in Caps wins, despite a close 360-349 split between victories and defeats over his career game log. But "as Ovechkin goes, so go the Caps" might be more a thing of the past than of the present, and the current key to Washington's success might well lie a tick or two down the white board, in what could nominally be called the second...

Capitals Moments that Mattered: Taking What the Penalty Kill Offers

In two straight games the Caps have gotten key goals from their power play unit. Neither has come from Alex Ovechkin, but both goals will help open up Ovechkin going forward. During the Washington Capitals' 1-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils back in mid-November, the Caps power play went 0-for-4 and Alex Ovechkin was limited to just two shots on the game. The Devils made a concerted effort to take Ovechkin's shot away, and the power play was unable to adjust. In the 11 games since, there's been only one game in which Ovechkin has a power play goal, because apparently the Islanders didn't...
