Ovechkin going back to LW vs. Devils
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)
Capitals coach Adam Oates announced the move before the Capitals (0-3) were to face the Devils (2-0) at the Prudential Center.
Oates moved Ovechkin to right wing at the start of the season, but moved him back to the left side in the third period of Thursday night's 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.
Ovechkin, who has scored at least 30 goals in each of his first seven seasons, has one assist in three games.
