For the longest time, we’ve been subjected to the national media telling us that Alex Ovechkin is selfish, eurotrash, and a coach killer. So forgive me if this feels like the same old story, but here’s another article dedicated to how the Russian machine made a kid’s night.
After every home game, whoever from the Caps is selected as one of the night’s three stars tosses a puck into the stands. Ovechkin, second star against the Avalanche, came out out of the locker room and waved to the crowd. Then he handed a puck to a tiny Caps fan right by the railing.
You’re going to need to check out this kid’s reaction.
He’s stunned, like: THIS. IS. THE. COOLEST. THING. EVER.
He’s cradling the puck like it’s a pot of gold. Or a baby pig. It’s like he’s holding the key to the universe and no one can stop him.
These are the tiny moments that help make fans for a lifetime. From Captain Alex Ovechkin, we’ve seen a lot of them this season.
