Sidney Crosby thinks that eventually Alex Ovechkin will get out of his scoring slump.
"I've watched a couple games and I think he's had some good chances and the puck hasn't gone in," Crosby said. "I think that obviously there's always expectations, there's a lot of eyes on him. There's pressure that comes with that, but I think that he's still shooting the puck well, still creating some good chances. Someone you definitely have to be aware of. I don't see that as a big problem for him. I think he's gonna generate chances and I'm sure eventually the points will come." Ovechkin has two goals and five points in 10 games this season. Washington and Pittsburgh will face each other on Thursday.
