Ovechkin himself has stated it’s not his job to make hits as much as it is to score goals. Putting the puck in the net, and doing it with regularity in the next few weeks, will go a long way toward whether the Caps squeak into the playoffs, cruise into April or miss altogether.

“It’s nine games left and we have to try to win all the games if we want to be in the playoffs,” Ovechkin said. “I don’t think everybody just want to go to the playoffs. … This team wants to win.”

That’s the Ovechkin the Caps want to hear.
