NEWARK, N.J. -- If Alex Ovechkin scores Friday at Prudential Center, it'll be the first time all season that he'll have goals in back-to-back games. And if Ovechkin can get at least one against the Devils, it'll also be his third goal in the last four games and fourth in the last seven.
Baby steps for sure, but Ovechkin's smallish production so far this season suggests any steps are a positive.
"The last probably 10 games I feel very good," said Ovechkin, whose 11 goals this season puts him a tie for 46th place with 26 other players. "I feel myself, pretty comfortable and pretty good."
