Alex Ovechkin is a very unique human. He wears yellow laces in his skates, communicates in only parenthesis and haha’s, and celebrates his teammates’ goals more than his own.
He also plays defense in a very Ovi way.
Such as early in the third period, when Lightning defenseman Slater Koekkoek went for a wraparound goal. Ovi, who read the play perfectly, decided in that moment to screw the pokecheck and take the body. Hard.
Good lord, Ovi.
That, my friends, is a bruising bodycheck.
