Alex Ovechkin is the second coming

The Washington Capitals left winger scored four goals and an assist in the Caps OT victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens last night. I was one of lucky people in attendance who got to watch AO sustain a broken nose, get stitches in his cheek (inside), and suffer a bloody lip - all while racking up the points.

AO now leads the NHL in goals, points, power play goals, and shots. He is 21st in the league in plus-minus, 5th among forwards in hits, and 9th in take-aways. Talk about earning his salary! And the NHL just named him the #1 star for January, 2008.

We are so lucky to have this guy on our team. Sigh. All the years of suckage are finally paying off.

H-U-S-K Husks Husks more! It was fun to be your "hockey husband" and witness this one. He is a singular talent.
