Ovechkin scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Jets on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old went five straight games without scoring once he was closing in on 700 career goals, but Ovechkin is back on track now with three goals in his last four games. Even with the drought, he's only two goals behind the league leader and is on pace for another 50-goal campaign. Ovechkin has 43 goals and 60 points with a minus-13 rating in 62 games this season.

Ovechkin scored his 42nd goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

He ripped the puck past Mackenzie Blackwood on a vintage Ovie one-timer early in the third period to tie the score at 2-2, but the Caps couldn't finish the job. Ovechkin is now one of eight players in NHL history with 700 career goals, and with nine more he'll move past former Capitals sniper Mike Gartner into seventh place on the all-time list.

Ovechkin scored three straight goals in the third period during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

With the Caps down 2-1 and just over six minutes remaining in the game, Ovie -- who didn't even have a shot on net to that point -- got to work, beating Jonathan Quick twice in a 70-second span before capping his evening with an empty-net tally. The future Hall of Famer has now reached 40 goals in a season for the 11th time thanks to a ridiculous stretch that has seen him light the lamp 16 times in his last 10 games, and Ovechkin sits just two goals shy of 700 for his illustrious career.

Ovechkin scored two goals on 11 shots on net in a 5-3 victory over the Senators on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The "Great 8" is on quite a scoring spree, as he has multiple goals in four of the last five games. Since Jan. 7, Ovechkin has 13 goals in eight contests, including 11 in the past five games. With his two goals Friday, he moved past Mark Messier for eighth on the NHL's all-time goals list. He could be on his way to another Rocket Richard Trophy with 37 goals and 54 points in 51 games this season, though David Pastrnak (37 goals) and Auston Matthews (36) are keeping pace with the prolific sniper.

Per Samantha Pell of The Washington Post, Ovechkin has opted to skip the All-Star Game, which means he'll have to serve a one-game suspension Monday against Montreal.

EDGE Analysis

At this stage in his career, Ovechkin is far more concerned about being healthy and well rested for the second half of the season than participating in the meaningless All-Star Game, but he'll have to accept a league-mandated one-game suspension as a result. The 34-year-old sniper will have to watch Monday's matchup with Montreal from the press box, but he'll be back in the lineup against the Predators on Wednesday.

Ovechkin scored three goals in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

He opened the scoring midway through the first period, then potted two more in the third as the Caps rallied from a 4-1 deficit. Amazingly, Ovie found twine with his only three shots on the afternoon, but amazing feats are nothing new for the future Hall of Famer -- he's recorded hat tricks in back-to-back games and lit the lamp 10 times in his last six contests, and the surge has moved him into a tie with Steve Yzerman for ninth place on the NHL's all-time goal-scoring list at 692. Next up: Mark Messier in eighth with 694.
