“He acts like it’s his.” That’s how my mom characterized Alex Ovechkin‘s celebrations for other players’ goals on Friday night. And while I used that to make a cheap joke about selfish Russians, my mom was right. Ovi got to celebrate four times on Friday night’s excellent win over the Islanders (one for him, three for others). It was one of the best games these Caps have played all season, and they’re gonna need more of it today on Long Island.
The series is tied 1-1.
Game starts a little after noon on NBC proper, so if you’re watching from brunch and Pierre mentions the Brandon Wheat Kings, take a deep swig of your mimosa.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Islanders||47-28-7||53.5%||99.1||18.7%||78.0%|
Turn and face the strange, we’ve got some changes to the forwards, as told by Alex Prewitt. Good luck decoding these.
This dude. Hand’s down.
There’s a lot more going on. Check out Caps Clips on Japers Rink.
