Ovechkin turns attention to Capitals staying a Cup contender

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) Alex Ovechkin doesn't think the Washington Capitals suddenly stink.

Forwards Justin Williams, Marcus Johansson and Daniel Winnik and defensemen Karl Alzner, Nate Schmidt and Kevin Shattenkirk are gone, as are the expectations of Washington being a no-doubt Stanley Cup contender following another disappointing playoff exit. But now that he has put the Olympic question to bed , Ovechkin is ready to prepare for a different kind of season and show that he and the Capitals are still relevant.

"I think we have still good team," Ovechkin said Friday after the first practices of training camp. "We're gonna be fine."
