Ovie: If I'd score goal, maybe it could be a different game
Capitals Insider, May 14, 2009:
Green had a bum shoulder, the same one he hurt in Anaheim. Tom Poti had a broken foot, which he suffered in Game 1 of this series.
Ovechkin was battling a groin injury.
Alexander Semin was also hurt, though I'm not certain of his injury. I did hear, however, that the injury likely would have sidelined him in the regular season.
Cryin wont help you, prayin wont do you no good,
Now, cryin wont help you, prayin wont do you no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.

It will be some weeks still before Ovi heads home to Moscow, vacations a bit and then begins his grueling training regimen to better his career. During that time, if you happen to be standing at a D.C. street corner as Ovi passes, his red Caps' flags fluttering wildly in the summer sun, wave and blow a kiss at this wunderkid, or honk your horn if you're behind him and pump a fist out your window. He's one of us, and aren't we damned lucky for it.

It's gonna be a long summer for Ovie.
