from the Washington Post,
Ovechkin and his teammates are keenly aware of how important winning is to attracting fans and holding their attention. The Capitals played themselves into playoff contention last month by winning seven of nine games, but have since dropped seven of their last eight and are on the fringe of the race for the team’s first postseason birth since 2002-2003.
Ovechkin added: “Capitals fans are great fans. But sometimes there’s not many. I want more. When you go to the ice and you see lots of people, it’s a better atmosphere. When Washington has lots of people, it’s unbelievable.”
