washcaps: POST VIDEO: Ovechkin, Hendricks and Johansson on the OT loss to the Flyers
Alex skated really well vs. Flyers, scored a game tying goal, his 16th (just two ovechtricks away from Stamkos :), was very dynamic and his dribbling has been improved. Let's hope that Ovi will step up even more in the incoming games.
Hey, I am not alone, BB says that Alex did well "he is mixing up real well now" (starts @2:50):
Gee, I thought Alex went around the defense three times last night to the outside. I thought that he was as good as he's done. Braydon Coburn stopped him [only] once when he tried to cut to the middle. It's gonna happen and you gotta mixed it up. In the last game he beat Karlsson twice to the outside, it's [more] a question of keeping his balance when goes past these guys...

I was happy for DJ King, I'd give him the edge.
Alex Ovechkin comments on Eric Staal being named an All-Star Captain.
Ovi looks upbeat and jokes that he will be picked late in the first round of a draft.
