Ahead of his potentially historic night at Verizon Center, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin landed on the cover of The Washington Post Express, Wednesday morning. In a stunning photo-manipulated graphic, Ovechkin can be seen celebrating a goal (or another teammate’s goal) while a diagonal, blue splattering of water-color paint blends into the background.
The title text reads, “Death. Taxes. And Ovi. As the Capitals’ relentless superstar nears 1,000 career points, he keeps reminding us that we can always count on him – even in his 12th season.”
Take a closer look below.

I believe the cover promotes Dan Steinberg’s brilliant column published Tuesday morning online.
This is my new favorite illustration by Express since they turned the Caps into ghostbusters last April.
