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
