Ovie’s Back!

Another Celebration in the Spotlight
Originally uploaded by clydeorama

In case you were wondering, Alex Ovechkin is finally back on track with the Capitals. The Russian star and city favorite knocked in a power play goal and added three assists in last night’s 6-4 win over the Anaheim Ducks, bringing his points total to 14 on the season.

It’s about time. Alexander Semin is starting to cool a little after his red-hot start and was absent for the second game in a row, nursing an “undisclosed upper-body injury” (oh, come on!). Having the Caps captain superstar slip back into gear after such a rocky October has to be relieving to many Caps fans as well as Coach Boudreau.

Next game is tonight against the LA Kings, continuing the Caps’ West Coast swing.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

  1. Except that AO is not the Caps caption. That would be Chris Clark, who has stunk up the joint this year (and I’m a huge fan of his, but truth be told, he has stunk).

  2. Crap, you’re right. Fixed.

    My excuse? I’m more versed in Penguins lore than my somewhat-adopted hometown team here, so slips like that happen. ;)
