Alex Ovechkin has had a very good February and the oddsmakers have taken notice.
Tonight the Capitals face off with the rival Penguins in their final regular season meeting of 2014-15. Join the conversation on social media with Capitals Pulse!
In three victories over the Penguins this season, the Capitals have outscored their Metro Division rivals by a combined score of 10-1 while holding Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin without a point.
Sidney Crosby did his best impression of an actual hockey player Thursday night as he dropped the gloves and fought Brandon Dubinsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor and on Tuesday night the Capitals won a hockey game because they had cooler heads than the Penguins.
