On January 19, 2010, Aloft Dulles welcomed our VIP guests to our Owner's Suite at the Verizon Center for one of the most anticipated games, Detroit Red Wings vs. Capitals. It was a very spirited event as the fans cheered for their favorite team. The Capitals won 2-3, much to the delight of the DC fans. So Alex Ovechkin can set up goals too. Who knew?
Sure, Ovechkin can score -- he reached the 30-goal mark for the fifth time in as many seasons with his first NHL penalty-shot goal in Washington's 5-3 win over Philadelphia Sunday. But only three of Ovi's 10 points in the Capitals' four games last week came on goals. The rest were assists, including a career-best four during a five-point night against Toronto on Friday. He now has more assists (34) than goals – something that he hasn't done since his rookie season of 2005-06. Here's a scary thought for the rest of the NHL: Not only can Ovechkin put the puck in the net, but by all indications he's showing that's not all he can do!
