News: Ovechkin scored his first two goals of the season in Saturday's 4-0 win over Boston. Impact: The first came on a patented Ovie one-timer from the left circle while on the power play; the second was a blistering snipe off a nice feed from Nicklas Backstrom. He also laid three hits and fired seven shots. He delivers a classic goals/hits/shots trifecta every season and this one should be no different.(RotoWire, )

News: Though he didn't tally a goal or assist in Thursday's season-opening loss to the Canadiens, Ovechkin turned in an active outing. He supplied four shots on goal and six hits in the shootout defeat. Impact: The Capitals will look to turn Ovechkin into more of a two-way threat under defensive-minded coach Barry Trotz, but the 29-year-old's goal-scoring ability is what will always drive his fantasy value. He didn't notice much of a dropoff in his scoring during the preseason, and it should be just a matter of time before he starts delivering point-per-game production.(RotoWire, )
