“What is he going to do, cry?”


ESPN recently conducted a poll of NHL Players in which they asked, “Which player complains the most on the ice?” The verdict by an overwhelming margin, Sidney Crosby. They also asked a question, “If you could change lives with another player, who would it be?” The answer on that one? You guessed it, Alex Ovechkin. The two squared off on Sunday in a nationally televised game, and Ovechkin and the Caps got the upper hand with the 5-2 victory.

However the goals weren’t the most entertaining part of the game. That came towards the end of the second period, when this happened:

Apparently Sid “the Kid” was upset about what he called a cheap shot by Ovechkin in their last game in January. Need we remind Cindy of his groin punching incident against Atlanta, or his Face-Off attack of an opposing player against Florida? Per usual, Ovechkin provided some great quotes after the game. Read the story over at Capitals Insider for more :

“What I can say about him? He is a good player, but he talks too much.”

“What, I can’t play hard against him? What is he going to do, cry?”


Going into the game, I made a bet with Pittsburgh Sports Blogger Tecmo of PSAMP (Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies). The winning side would get to create a post on the other person’s site. Since the Capitals thoroughly demolished the Penguins 5-2 and chased Fleury from the pipes, we won the bet. So my post should be up on PSAMP later today. I thought they would enjoy some video highlights.
