Trotz counting on Ovechkin to be 'difference maker' vs Isles

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) Alex The Great can be better.

That's what Capitals coach Barry Trotz is counting on from Alex Ovechkin if Washington intends to bounce back in its first-round playoff series against the New York Islanders.

"He's still a young man who's growing," Trotz said Monday, a day after a 2-1 overtime loss in which Ovechkin was held off the score sheet for the second time in three playoff games.
