Awesome: Alex Ovechkin Sprays Snow On Little Punk Waving Canadiens Team Flag

As part of his pregame routine, Alexander Ovechkin always skates hard to the bench and stops abruptly, spraying snow everywhere. Consider it akin to the practice by LeBron James and Kevin Garnett when they throw up clouds of powder prior to every opening tip. What made Ovechkin’s routine before the Caps-Habs game last night different (and sure to drum up unnecessary controversy) was there happened to be two little kids dressed up in Montreal gear waving Canadiens flags. The kid standing in front of the Caps’ bench got slightly sprayed, surely scarring him for life.

Just kidding, and as Sean Leahy points out over at Puck Daddy, the kid probably was more thrilled than traumatized. It was the Unfrozen Caveman Hockey Player himself, after all.

While the anti-Ovechkin crowd will see this as a classless act because it’s, well, Ovechkin, you just know that that kid is somewhere in a Montreal-area elementary school right now bragging to his buddies about getting snowed on by the Washington captain. He probably has the YouTube video favorite’d.

Absolutely agree. Maybe if the Habs hadn’t crapped the bed last night, losing 6-3 and going down 3-1 in the series, the kid would be in even better spirits than he already is today. Alex Ovechkin, man.

    Bring Brasher back for one more game to beat the pi$$ out of this dirtbag Russian, no one I hate more in the league right now. This is minor compared to taking guys out at the knee and slamming Campbell into the boards from behind….he’s gonna get creamed someday, can not wait until somebody fooks him up.

    Do you know what I think about Ovechkin? He’s a selfish jerk. He’s a star and he didn’t even want to sign a single autograph for a fan in Montreal. When he sprayed the kid, he could of braked on the other side but he decided to do it on the kids’ side. As for the kid being proud, I wouldn’t be proud if the king would take a shit on me, so stop guessing shit to save his ass. I don’t mind losing to a better team like the caps, but when that jerk walks around thinking he can do whatever the f*** he wants he can go to hell. He doesn’t deserve to be in the NHL with attitude he has.

    Why should he sign autographs in Montreal? Every time he touched the puck the crowd booed him.

    He has no obligation to sign autographs, specially when they have shown nothing but hate towards him in Montreal. And let’s be honest, No normal kid would feel angry that an star from the game he loves was so close to him that the snow from his skates sprayed up, If he’s a true fan he wouldn’t make a big fuss out of it. A lot of people are just angry at the fact that he’s a scoring machine playing against their team. I’m sorry Montreal but you need to grow up and stop taking things so personally.

    P.S Bucksters post cracked me up lol.

    In the good old days, the classy superstars (Gretzky/Orr/Messier) would have given the kid their stick. But those guys were winners, team players and weren’t all about themselves. Any one who thinks that is an okay move, doesn’t know the game, and doesn’t know what the real men who played the game are all about. Lester – Try reading “The Game” by Ken Dryden if you really want to learn about hockey.

    This can be a sensible website. I am talking about it all. You’ve a great deal of comprehending with this challenge, and thereby much eagerness.

Youve became a good design in this case i mean never much too flamboyant, but produces a announcement as big as what youre expressing. Amazing project, indeed.
