  • It may have taken him a little time to get going, but now that he has, there seems to be no stopping Alex Ovechkin. [Caps Outsider]
  • It’s not just that Ovechkin is scoring, either - what impresses his coach (and all of us) is how he’s finding ways to score from everywhere. [NBCSW]
  • Also heating up? Mr. Evgeny Kuznetsov, who suddenly has 12 points in his last 14 games. [S&S]
  • Breaking down the individual player performance on the Caps’ blueline. [NoVa Caps]
  • A few leftovers from Sunday’s matinee win in DC. [Caps, RMNB, S&S]
  • Finally, happy 68th birthday to Dennis Ververgaert, happy 50th to Jamie Heward, and raise a glass to the memory of Doug Wickenheiser, who would have been 60 today.
