In politically charged Washington, D.C., the Sunday morning network news programs are must-see events. The last two weeks those shows have featured what has quickly become another must-see in the District: the Washington Capitals.
Last Sunday, April 13, Chris Wallace profiled Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin
in Fox News Sunday’s weekly “Power Player” segment.
“This week, Washington is abuzz about this man,” Wallace said by way of introduction. “No, it’s not a politician or a visiting head of state. It’s our Power Player of the Week.”

Both Wallace and Russert have been among the residents of the D.C. area to cheer on the Capitals at Verizon Center this season.
