If you missed Great Eight DVD on the NHL Network today, they will re-air the documentary Dec. 22 at 6 p.m., Dec. 25 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 27 at 7 p.m. (H/t to our reader "O".)
Ovi, Carlson, Knuble, Chimera, Bradley and Boudreau
Just about time to bounce back and be ready for Pens on New Year's eve.
I couldn't believe myself, but I was rooting for Flyers tonight and they ended Pens 12 game win streak. Now the pendulum is swinging back (Damien Cox jinxed it :-).
Bruce Boudreau on ESPN's SportNation:
Were you as surprised as I was to see Ovie fighting the other night?
Yes. I was surprised but when he saw the guy coming at him, he thought there was no recourse. He saw him coming at him and he decided to be the aggressor and not let someone jump him.
As a fan it seems like Ovechkin can get pretty excited on the ice. As a coach, do you ever have to talk with him to try and calm him down?
No. My thought on that is the more he's excited, it reminds me of The Hulk. The madder he gets the stronger he gets. The more excited Alex gets the better he gets. It's when he's sullen you worry about him.
"Well, he was just seventeen, and you know what I mean, and the way he looked, was WAY beyond compare." :-)
It's strange to see Ovi smile and not having a missing tooth... What a beautiful smile he had... Now you have to wait another 10 years to see that :-)
