Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin called TJ Oshie a “tough customer” after TJ’s fight with enforcer Adam McQuaid Friday. Ovechkin was impressed with how his new linemate could dish out punishment and take it as well.
“I see a couple good hits in his face,” Ovechkin said to NHL.com’s Katie Brown.
After reviewing photos from RMNB’s Amanda Bowen and social media, I can confirm that Ovechkin saw those “good hits in [Oshie’s] face.” Ovechkin and the Bruins’ Chris Kelly had front-row seats to the fight. Together they watched, arms wrapped around each other like they were taking Homecoming photos.

Their collegial body language contrasts well with the violence in front of them. Just another day at the office.
(While these photos are tremendous, I’m still a bigger fan of Mike Green and Erik Karlsson’s love fest during a fight last year.)
