Fifteen Caps players (and Jeff Halpern) skated at Kettler Capitals Iceplex Friday, but Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin remains in his homeland of Russia.
Earlier on Friday, photographer Elena Rusko captured the Russian machine at the Dynamo Moscow game while he was aggressively face-nuzzled by the team’s former head coach, Oleg Znarok.
Dynamo lost 4-1. They sit DFL in the KHL after being outscored 10-2 in the first two games.
While Ovechkin goes way back with Znarok (Ovechkin played under him during the lock-out and during this past year’s World Championships) and this isn’t a big deal, it’s probably not the best thing in the world to see the Capitals’ best player (sorry, Brouwer Rangers) exchange pleasantries with a KHL
head coach team official just days after the KHL President hints that you might return home for the 2015-16 season. But what do I know?
With that in mind, let’s have a Caption Contest! What is Znarok actually saying to Ovi? Here’s a photo with a caption bubble.
Submit your ideas in the comments below. Have fun and I’ll see you at the party tomorrow.
