Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals still have a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup for years to come. This was announced to RBC Sport by the head coach of the Russian national hockey team, Alexei Zhamnov.
“Of course, Sasha will still have a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup, life doesn’t end there. Florida ranked first for a reason. He probably doesn’t have as much playoff experience. Let’s see how the games will develop in the future. But this time in the first round of the NHL many of the same teams came together. It will be interesting to watch the further development of the playoffs. I think that the club management should take action and think carefully about what to change in the off-season, ”said Zhamnov.
