07:59 AM ET 01.20 | With a loss in New York on Sunday night, the Capitals have now lost five in a row -- their longest losing streak since December 2010. It's been an ugly stretch, this 4-7-5 run in the past 16 games, with mistakes like the bad penalties and turnovers that popped up once again in New York. ... It wasn't that long ago that the Capitals were happy with their overall play, just not the result. But they've completely lost their bearings in consecutive losses to Columbus and New York that have seen them outscored 9-2. "What am I going to say? 'Wake up everybody' Or something like that? We say too much, go out there and do it," Ovechkin said. "We can be good speaker but you have to show it on the ice. Especially me, Nicky, Greenie, Brooksie. We have to lead by example. It's all about it."

I'll see your 4-7-5 and raise it a 1-7-1.

Happy National Penguin Awareness Day, everyone!

Now, back to Ovi, good to see he's not blaming everyone else, that he's also taking responsibility for the team's recent slide. This must be Ovi 2.0 just in time for Sochi.

Hey WhiteSKATES, sorry about the typo yesterday, I was called worse last night:) But everyone has a bad streak, an injury, or a bad bounce happens to most teams, suddenly you've lost 5 games.

My mom never sounded that happy. In fact I heard her say once "You're going anyway"

There's that... too bad I do all of my bidness online now.

The team goes where the captain leads. If the guy wearing the C isn't going outside of his comfort zone, how can he hold the rest of the team accountable for not doing so?

"Ovi erupts: Talk is cheap"

Just think what that headline could've been:

"Ovie erupts with Semin"
