Mixed Minus: Alex Ovechkin has been criticized for his defensive play, most recently by his coach Wednesday night. Ovechkin leads the NHL with 48 goals this season, but is a horrible minus-36. Since plus/minus became an official stat in 1967-68, only one player has led the league in goals with a minus-15 or worse. In 2003-04, Rick Nash had 41 goals and was minus-35.
