Capitals Need More Offense From Ovechkin

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider,

There is a lot that hasn’t gone well for the Capitals through the first four games of the season. They’re taking too many penalties (which you can read more about in today’s story for the dead-tree edition), the power play is ineffective (3-for-20) and their superstar captain has largely been absent.

Alex Ovechkin has yet to score a goal making this four-game drought the longest dry spell to start a season of his career.  He has just one point, a secondary assist, and meanwhile Washington (0-3-1) is the only team in the NHL without a single victory.

Earlier this month, General Manager George McPhee said that the Capitals would only go as far as Ovechkin can take them. As they try to get on track early in the season, they need more from the face of the franchise.

“Of course it’s tough. Of course I wanna see my name on the score list. But, again, we’re gonna try,” Ovechkin said. “It’s not frustrating. Right now most important thing it’s not about make a points or make goals. We have to take a win. One win and then I think it’s gonna be a very relief for us.”
