Captain Alex Ovechkin has produced an emphatic answer to his lowest-scoring full season since 2010-11 and hopes to continue his offensive surge when the Washington Capitals visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.
Ovechkin followed up a hat trick in the season opener with four more goals in a 6-1 victory over Montreal on Saturday and has netted 41 tallies in 63 career games against Tampa Bay.
“I think the biggest thing is, Alex is skating and he’s getting to those pucks, and his shot is undeniable,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz told reporters of Ovechkin, who scored 33 goals in 2016-17.
“When he’s moving his feet, you just need that space.” Ovechkin may be able to add to his total against the Lightning, who have given up eight goals in their first two contests - both against Florida.
