Alex Ovechkin is calling it the “biggest week” of the Capitals season- four road games in six nights including back-to-back matchups against the Winnipeg Jets.
For 5½ seasons, it was the best individual rivalry in hockey, possibly in all of sports.
The Capitals boarded a plane Monday for the start of a four-game road trip that, essentially, will tell them if they are playoff contenders or pretenders.
It’s official. Beginning next season the Capitals will be seeing a whole lot more of Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux and Henrik Lundqvist.
