Wow, we'll see Ovechkin on October 3, 7 and 9.
Here's a link to ESPN3, but they don't even have hockey in their menu... yet.
But wait, here is more! :-) Good news for Bruins fans, Zdeno Chara will play for KHL's Lev and they can see him on October 9 vs. Ovechkin.
11:48AM EST October 2. 2012 - Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara has agreed to play for Prague in the Kontinental Hockey League until the NHL resumes competition.What a nightmare for Ovi, haha.
His agent, Matt Keator, told USA TODAY Sports that Chara had several options, but decided that Lev Praha (Prague Lions) was the best fit.
"He has friends there, and it's within hours of his home in Slovakia and it's a great hockey city," Keator said.
Meanwhile watch Ovechkin's PP goal vs. Neftekhimik:
