Teddy Sears - Alex the Great

Blog 10 - Thursday, May 7

Alex Ovechkin, as told through the inimitable voice of Will Lyman for Dos Equis: "His reputation is expanding... faster than the Universe. He once had an awkward moment... just to see how it feels. He lives vicariously...through himself. He is... the best hockey player in the world."

Alex: "I don't always score goals, but when I do, we usually win..."

Except last night, but hey, there's always Friday night. Pens 3 CAPS 2.

Stay thirsty Ovie!

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
