Ovechkin created a moment of hilarity when the camera cut to him obviously admiring a pair of women dancing in the aisles of the Bell Centre.
"I [didn't] think the camera's going to see me," he smiled after game.
Ovechkin also scored a goal in regulation and added three assists, his crafty deke to outwit Luongo in the shootout prompted cries of "Ovie, Ovie".
Capitals Insider, Jan. 25, 2009:
Late in the second period, the JumboTron over center ice showed two young women holding beers and dancing to the beat during a break in the action. The camera then cut to Ovechkin, who was watching the girls on the screen and was saying, "Oooooooh."
Of course, all 21,273 fans in the building cracked up with laughter. Ovechkin, too, let out a hearty chuckle.
"They were dancing pretty well, and I said, 'Wow!'" Ovechkin told me moments ago. "I don't think the camera was going to look straight at me."
And what Vinny is doing? :-)
Comment at YouTube:
The Jumbotron was showing two amazing girls wearing small pink habs t-shirts, barely containing their "assets". When it abruptly gets a closeup of Ovechkin checking them out! The girls look like typical Montreal hotness. If you ever lived here you know what Im talking about.
THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT TASTES THE SWEETEST :-)
According to Pavel Lysenkov (SovSport.ru) the legendary Russian Coach Anatoli Tarasov used to say:
"A cool hockey player should see the puck, all his parthers, all opposite players and a blonde in the sixth row."
For that Essa Tikannen replied: Six row blonde! That's why I missed an open net in playoffs...
