Ovechkin is the most elite player in the NHL.. and when you focus so much on watching one player, it lets Washington's other lines go to work.
With a legit #1 goalie.. Washington, IMO, has become a Top-10 NHL team. And with so little between the top teams to the mediocre teams these days.. almost anyone could "upset" anyone.
To think that Ovechkin and the Caps can't beat us would be crazy. To think that Ovechkin and the Caps can't get to the Stanley Cup Finals would be crazy as well.
Ovechkin has scored over 26% of the Captials goals.
Ovheckin has picked up a point on 47% of the Capitals goals.
And it's not like the Caps don't score goals.. they are a Top-10 scoring team in the NHL.
Ovechkin can win games by himself. With the help he is getting this year, it's a bit easier. By adding a #1 goalie at the deadline.. the Capitals are a deadly, deadly team.
Aside from the San Jose Sharks (what the hell!?!).. the Capitals have been the best team in the league over the past 10-15 games.
Since gaining Huet, Ovechkin has posted 27 points over 15 games.
