07:32 AM ET 03.10 | Not only are the Capitals teetering on the edge of the playoff race, but the 26-year old Alex Ovechkin is suffering through the worst statistical season of his career. In 2009, he signed the richest contract in NHL history, and he's slated to earn $9 million this season. He enters the season's final four weeks tied for No. 53 in the league in points and tied for 18th in goals. A player who four times topped 100 points in his career and scored 65 goals just four seasons ago is on pace to finish the season with 61 points and 33 goals.
