After icing a 4-2 win Tuesday in Nashville with his 58th goal (a picture-perfect bank shot off the sideboards into an empty net), Alex Ovechkin leads his Caps into Chicago for a Wednesday tilt against the Blackhawks.

And, as usual, A.O. and Co. need another win. Coming into Wednesday's play, the Capitals stood three points behind the first-place Hurricanes in the Southeast Division and two points back of the Flyers in the chase for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.
