Ovechkin’s celebrations drawing interest…

The Tennessean’s John Glennon wrote an article today about the league-wide attention Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin is getting over his goal celebrations.

Reminds me of a time when another Russian who played for the Nashville Predators was having a good time celebrating goals and teammates told him not to draw attention to himself and “showboat” like that. Glennon’s article suggests they’ve changed their tune.

Hmmm… wonder why?

Either way, the article is worth the read because Ovechkin has found himself as the face of the league as of late (sorry Sidney) and his energy and excitement are infectious and can only be good for the game.

Oh yeah, and did we mention that those celebrations might be going on tonight at the Sommet Center? Puck drops at 7:05pm.
