Ovechkin still enjoys scoring goals, but he's no longer the kid at Christmas he used to be. The goals don't come quite as easily anymore, at least not often enough to drown out the wave of criticism around him.
"He's going to be questioned because of who he is every single day," former NHL defenseman Aaron Ward said. "You expect the magnificence and you expect the never-seen-before. When it's not coming, then people are quicker to jump down his back."
"The problem for Ovechkin is it's very black and white when he's not successful," said Ward, now an analyst for TSN in Canada.
