NEWS

Covers Preview - The Washington Capitals look to continue their strong start to the season when they open a three-game road trip against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday. Captain Alex Ovechkin resides five points behind Peter Bondra (825) on Washington's all-time list, although a shootout tally was all he mustered in his team's 2-1 victory over Florida on Saturday. Ovechkin has scored five goals and set up another this season, and has seven tallies and five assists in 12 career meetings with Edmonton.
