It’s the first week of the NHL season and Caps superstar Alexander Ovechkin, coming off his third Hart Trophy, picked up where he left off last season.  Ovechkin was named one of the three NHL Stars of the Week.

The Capitals are sitting at 1-2 on the season, but Alexander Ovechkin has done his part.  In three games, Ovie has tallied 6 points, with 4 goals and 2 assists.  He has scored in each of three three games.  He has also been the main driving force on the Caps successful power play thus far.  Three of his four goal have been on the man advantage and he has also added two power play helpers.  Through three games, he has racked up 24 shots on net.

Through three games, Ovechkin leads the NHL in points, goals, tied for ninth in hits, and leads the NHL in power play goals and shots on net.  Pretty impressive start for Ovechkin.
