Ovi and his bro Misha. Same genes, different goals in life. He could've been a hockey player, and a good one, but he chose another path. Like from that movie, "Backbeat" about Stuart Sutcliffe: "He could've been with the Beatles... but he chose to be an artist."
Go, Misha! All the best to you.
Misha, Ovi, Mago and Goose
A ton of pics from http://ovechkin.tumblr.com/ and http://washingtoncapitals.tumblr.com/ (H/t to BobbyG)
Our scouting report(wink to BobbyG): according to Ian Oland at RMNB, the dark haired girl in some of the photos riding Ovie's back is Alex Semin's niece, his sister's daughter. And the guy getting the wedgie from Ovie is GM George McPhee's son Graham.
"Well, the atmosphere is great," Ovechkin said. "And it's too bad it was not open practice for fans. But it's good. We have family and friends with us. And we just chill over there before the big game, so it's good."
