Former Ovechkin Linemate Joey Crabb Can’t Score Even Against Goalie Who Doesn’t Know the Shootout Started
There used to be a guy behind the Caps bench who looked like Ray Liotta. He made wacky decisions that harmed the team, like forcing Braden Holtby to play deep in the net, altering everyone’s sticks, and sometimes being too honest during press conferences.
But if there was one decision that was more bizarre than the rest: pairing Alex Ovechkin— this generation’s greatest goal scorer– with Jay Beagle and AHL journeyman Joey Crabb on the first line.
For more evidence of why it was such an awful decision, I direct you to an Instagram video from Paul Bissonnette.
