Great Pavel Lysenkov of Sovetsky Sport talked to Ovechkin's Dad Mikhail during Caps game vs. Maple Leafs:
During the break I went outside where you would normally see Ovechkin's Dad smoking.
"Two points this period, it will be a new record," I told him. "Knock on wood," brushed Uncle Misha.
"Has anything changed in Sasha's game since he became a Captain?"
He is thinking about the team even more. "Points are good, Dad, but it is no longer important. We must win the Stanley Cup." Before if my son would go two-on-one on the goalie, then I knew that he would rather shoot. Now I'll put my money on him giving the pass to his teammate.
