• Ovechkin apologizes for loss as Cup quest resumes


    WASHINGTON: Alex Ovechkin apologized to Russian fans and blamed himself for failing to give the host nation an Olympic medal on Tuesday as he returned to the Washington Capitals for the resumption of the National Hockey League season. Only two days after Canada beat Sweden in the Sochi Winter Olympic final, the NHL season resumed with players switching from a hunt for gold in Russia to the Stanley Cup title quest. Ovechkin, who led the NHL with 40 goals before the Olympic break, was unable to take Russia beyond the quarterfinals on home ice, a loss to Finland ending their dream.
