Alex Ovechkin will be returning to Moscow to attend to his family after the death of a close relative in Moscow, Russia. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to Alex and his family. We sincerely ask that you respect his privacy at this time.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
