Alex Ovechkin is confident.

So confident in the Washington Capitals that he's guaranteed his team will win Game 7 against the New York Rangers on Wednesday, despite the 3-1 stranglehold they once had on the series having evaporated after Sunday's Game 6 loss.

The charismatic Russian was without a point for his fourth straight game in the series, but that wasn't because of a lack of effort.

Ovechkin recorded six shots and absolutely crushed Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh in the third period.

The Rocket Richard Trophy winner was pleased with the character of his teammates despite the loss and thinks that it will be the determining factor in their series win.

Ovechkin has four goals and four assists in 13 postseason games.
