Quick hits with Ovi
Random things I got to find out when talking with Alex Ovechkin in quick hit fashion. Some of these things you might know already, some you might not, others likely won’t surprise you at all.
Favorite place to be in D.C.: “Verizon Center. It’s like home.”
Thoughts on countryman Evgeni Malkin: “We’re buddies. We’re teammates when we play for Russia, but we like to beat each other. It’s part of the fun.”
Thoughts on how he and Alex Semin are doing this year: “He’s great. We’re playing very well but we can get better.”
Favorite city to be in aside from Washington: “Montreal. It’s a great place to be. I love the people, I love the excitement. It’s a fun place to be.”
Least favorite city to be in: “Buffalo. It’s just tough there.”
Reason for wearing #8: “It was my mother’s number in basketball.”
It all comes back to family.
