Alex Ovechkin leads the Capitals in points since Nov. 24 (8g, 6a) and has 16 even-strength goals this season, which matches his total from the 2016-17 campaign. 

The Capitals, who are 6-1-1 in December and are tied with Columbus for first place atop the Metropolitan Division, will host the Anaheim Ducks at 8 p.m. on Saturday at Capital One Arena.
