Alex Ovechkin impressed Capitals coach Adam Oates with his play on Friday.

"I thought it was the best game he's played this year, quite honestly," Oates said. "He was involved in the whole game." Ovechkin has gotten off to a rough start and he didn't get a point on Friday. Still, he should start to find the back of the net with a much greater frequency as the season progresses.
