from Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post,
“When he’s getting scoring chances, hitting, bringing that energy, it fires everybody else up,” defenseman Karl Alzner said after a 4-1 victory, perhaps the Capitals’ most thorough of the Dale Hunter era. “He’s the most exciting guy in the league.
“When,” Alzner added after a pause, “he’s on his game.”
And there’s the rub.
Ovechkin has only been “on his game” a handful of times this season. So few, in fact, it would be wise not to let one good performance fool you.
