Wild-Capitals Preview

(AP) -- While looking to add to his case for another MVP, Alex Ovechkin will try to help the Washington Capitals apply more pressure on the Metropolitan Division leaders.

To get two more points in Thursday night's opener to a lengthy homestand, the Capitals will have to get through a Minnesota Wild team that's proved quite adept at stifling opponents lately.

Ovechkin has scored two goals in each of Washington's back-to-back wins after tallying just one in a four-game stretch that included three consecutive defeats to end February. He scored the winning goal for the second straight contest Tuesday in a 5-3 victory in Columbus.
