Ovechkin says Capitals are in 'middle of nowhere'

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) Explaining early playoff exits became an annual, awkward task for Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. This season, for the first time since 2007, they didn't even make the postseason, so now there's something new: real uncertainty.

Four years removed from winning the Presidents' Trophy, Washington is in the "middle of nowhere" and in a "hard position," is the way Ovechkin put it.

The Capitals did not make any immediate changes or announcements about the job status of coach Adam Oates or general manager George McPhee on Monday, the day after the regular season ended.
