Is Ovechkin Scared Or Is He Just Crazy?

Ovechkin & Lil' Ovie

Ovechkin & Lil' Ovie


Early during the New York Rangers‘ pre-game practice Monday morning at Madison Square Garden, Alex Ovechkin went out to the visitor’s bench and started watching intently.

He was there no longer than a few minutes before a Capitals’ Public Relations representative told him he couldn’t sit on the bench, but he could go in the stands. Ovechkin stood up, stretched out his chest and muttered something under his breath before walking back to the Capitals’ dressing room.

Asked later why he went out to the visitor’s bench, which is not a common practice among players, No. 8 smiled and said he wanted to mess with Rangers coach John Tortorella.

Well, why do you think they asked you to leave Ovie?

“Because they’re afraid of me, alright?” Ovechkin said before walking away.

I’ve never heard of this before. Ovechkin is clearly out of his mind. Let’s see if the Caps start faking some shots tonight to get the Rangers off balance since the Rangers defense has blocked 50 shots over the first 2 games of this series. I can’t believe the Rangers actually have a shot of pulling this off. The Garden should be rockin’ tonight.

    I’ve heard of hockey players watching each others practice. I’ve also witnessed it before, but never during a pregame standoff as big as this one. That’s why half of us including yours truly blogged about it.
