In other news, I think Galiev spilled some beans on Ovi's girlfriend situation in this article......
"a girlfriend he met on a Russian dating site"....which one would that be, new or old?
By Marty Klinkenberg, Telegraph-Journal, Sept. 17, 2011 "Galiev enjoying life with the Great 8"
"He tells us what we have to do off the ice, that we have to be disciplined and not to do stupid stuff,'' Galiev said. "He is a real professional and a great guy, and I am happy to be friends with him."
Ovechkin has his own clothing line, a girlfriend he met on a Russian dating site, and a knack for dead-panning in funny TV commercials. He is also extraordinarily talented at video games.
"Every night we go out together and then come back and play FIFA soccer on a Sony PlaySation,'' Galiev said. "We always play two to a team, with me and Dmitry (Orlov) on the same side.
"The first three times we played Alex and his teammate, we beat them."
Then Ovechkin challenged them to another game, with the winner buying dinner. Picture a mongoose inviting a cobra to supper.
Ovechkin easily won his dinner.
"He wanted to go to a steakhouse,'' Galiev said. "Not Subway."
I think it's old info, but I could be wrong...
