Caps' GM says it's on him to keep Ovechkin's Cup window open

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) There are hints of gray in Alex Ovechkin's hair now and his 31st birthday is a few months away.

Ovechkin isn't old, not even in hockey years, and is coming off a 50-goal season. But Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan knows Ovechkin's prime years as a player won't last forever, which adds urgency to the team's push for a Stanley Cup.

After another early playoff exit, MacLellan said it's up to him and the rest of the front office to make sure Ovechkin's playoff window doesn't close too soon.
