Ovechkin recorded a goal, a minus-2 rating, three shots, five hits and 12 penalty minutes during Monday's 5-2 loss over the Hurricanes in Game 6.

EDGE Analysis

Ovechkin did everything he could to secure a win for the Capitals, but his frustration with the officials following a disallowed goal in the third period boiled over and got him tossed in the final minutes. The reigning Conn Smythe Trophy-winner has been his usual excellent self in the playoffs with four goals and eight points against the Hurricanes in Round One. The Capitals will need more of the same if they are to survive Game 7 on Wednesday.

Ovechkin scored a power-play goal, delivered two helpers and dished a season-high 11 hits in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Hurricanes in Game 5.

EDGE Analysis

Ovechkin left a mark both on the scoresheet and on the bodies of the Hurricanes with Saturday's effort. He's up to three goals and four helpers in five games, to go with 29 hits and 15 shots on goal. All three of his tallies in the series have come on the power play.

Ovechkin scored the Capitals' lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 4 on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Ovie was in his office -- the left circle -- and he did what he does best. He fired a one-timer, this time on the power play. Ovechkin has two goals and two assists in four postseason games. And 63 goals and 121 points in 124 career playoff games. That kind of consistency is what fantasy playoff championships are built on.

Ovechkin racked up two assists, four shots and seven hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes in Game 2 of their first-round series.

EDGE Analysis

With three points and 13 hits through two games, Ovechkin is contributing in multiple ways as the Capitals move ahead 2-0 in the series. He had 89 points in 81 appearances this season, including 51 goals. Much of the Capitals' offense flows through the Russian winger, who is capable of reaping big rewards for fantasy owners.

Ovechkin finished Thursday's win with a goal, as Washington defeated the Hurricanes 4-2 in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

EDGE Analysis

The Great Eight scored on one of his patented power-play one-timers, and because Carolina scored twice in the third, Ovechkin's goal actually wound up being the game winner. He led all skaters in power-play ice time (6:07).

Ovechkin scored twice Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

The goals were numbers 50 and 51. Ovechkin became the third player in NHL history with at least eight 50-goal seasons. The only other two? Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy, who both had nine. Ovie also moved past Brendan Shanahan for 13th in goals (658) in history. And he became the third-oldest NHLer to score 50 in a season, behind Johnny Bucyk and Jaromir Jagr. It's just another record-setting night for Alexander the Gr8.

Ovechkin scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran superstar has three goals and 10 points in the last eight games, helping to carry the Caps to the top of the Metropolitan Division standings. Ovie needs to light the light just once in the final five games to record his eighth career 50-goal campaign -- leaving him one shy of the NHL record of nine, held by Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy.

Ovechkin scored two goals Saturday in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

The league leader had gone four games without a snipe, but now Ovechkin has 48. And a three-game, four-point scoring streak. Ovie's shooting percentage this season has been better than average (16.6 vs. 12.6), but he's still an epic sniper.

Ovechkin recorded an assist, five shots and eight hits during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

The helper was the 547th of his NHL career, pushing him to the 1,200-point mark in just 1072 games in his 14th season with the Capitals. With 46 goals and 78 points in 69 games, the 33-year-old winger is among the elite fantasy performers once again in 2018-19.
