So... Ovie is like, back and stuff, right?
I haven't watched any Washington games, but just looking at the numbers, it would appear that Alexander is indeed great again. Tied for 2nd in goals, 7th in points and leading the league in SOG, has Ovechkin decided he wants to be relevant again? Has Adam Oates figured it out? Basically, all I'm asking is what has changed? His stats become even more impressive if you take away his slow start. In his last 22 games, he has scored 18 goals and 31 points. Pro-rate that to 82 games and it's 67 goals and 116 points! Obviously, that pace is probably not sustainable, but those numbers are downright Ovechkian! So, Caps fans, armchair hockey analysts, what has changed? Does he just care again?
