Went to practice today, OMG Ovie was sooooo happy on the ice. You could tell he loved beating the Pens. He was goofing off, smiling a lot, laughing, playing around with the fans. When he came out to sign he had the biggest smile on his face. Look at this gapped tooth smile
Can you please use Name/Url radio button and type in some identification? Among our readers who leave comments we have "O", "J", etc. It's easier to refer instead of from "Anonymous" in the previous post with Tarik's article:
After watching him over the past several games, Ovie's finally coming out of a bit of a kind of long-standing funk. The spark in his play is coming back, his hitting's ramping up to phenomenal and he looks like he's back to enjoying just getting to play the game of hockey. As a viewer and a fan, this is what was missing. His scoring "slump" will change for the positive surely. But, with the new system the team is trying to solidify (fingers crossed), he may not ever burn up the back of the net like he did. It's okay. If the team is winning, it's okay. Ovie has said as much himself.
For what it's worth, I enjoy Katie's reporting. It's objective, basic and contains verifiable facts. She has worked hard to find her own footing here and not without challenges either. Good on her!
washcaps: Caps Get Back on Track: Knuble, Ovi, Fehr, Bruce on Tampa and more -
Stevie Y traded for Dwayne Roloson, really good trade for Tampa. Roloson is one of the goalies Ovi is getting hard time to score against.
