I've spent Thanksgiving in a cabin with no electricity and no internet (a guy across the creek had a satellite dish with a solar panel though). It was great. Even learned how to square dance under the full moon with my friend playing the fiddle. Lol, it was a lot of fun.
- So what, I missed two games and now Alex Ovechkin is the only NHL player to lead his team in scoring and PIM (washcaps)?
Ovi's Sabres - Caps stats:
1st period, 06:24 Alex Ovechkin (17th goal) Wrist Shot - Assists: J. Schultz (5 goals)
3rd period, 03:38 Alex Ovechkin, Boarding (maj) - 5 min (served by Chris Clark), Game misconduct
1 goal, +1, total ice time 15:25, 16 shifts, average shift 00:57, 3 shots on goal, 5 attempts blocked, 1 shot missed, 3 hits, 1 giveaway.
- Ovi mania hits Montreal again?
washcaps: The Ovechkin fascination in Montreal is intense. Coach Boudreau quipped it was "like the Beatles" as we left the hotel for Centre Bell.
Ovi's Caps - Habs stats:
1 goal, 1 assist, +1, total ice time 25:32, average shift 01:03, 8 shots on goal, 8 attempts blocked, 2 missed shots, 0 hits, 1 takeaway, blocked 1 shot, 1 faceoff win.
- Ovi now at 237 pounds? When the season started he was 233.
(H/t to Emily for video)
- Ovi's DNA in question?
- Ovi could be named Russia's Olympic Captain?
In other words, this is what some anonymous GM said about Ovechkin: "Ovechkin is as Canadian as Gordie Howe".
Just two games and so much has happened...
