NHL Detroit at Washington come on guys I need this one
Alex Ovechkin I need you today. I need a big win and I think I am going in the right direction here. I have been really getting screwed over lately by the NBA and I just keep coming back like an Ex-girlfriend. I’m sure that I will never learn my lesson but that is how it goes. Trying to work up a nice bank roll to blow it all on march madness is hard when you have NBA teams throwing games every night.
I’m going to say it. I like Alex Ovechkin. Alright there it is on record. There is something about this Russian dude that I like during the regular season. Never was that threatened by him in the post season but dammit he is amazing during the regular one. Since he really hasn’t had any post season success I think that his greatness in the NHL is not going to get as much hyped as it should. I mean he is the oldest looking 31 yr old guy on the planet in what should be his prime.
He is just 100% the Clyde Drexler to the blackhawks Michael Jordan or Dominique Wilkins or Patrick Ewing. The list could go on. Plus all the fun stories of him driving a zillion miles per hour has to catch up with him someday. I think when he eventually gets traded to the Penguins when he is 40 he will get that big one but until then we will see. This could be their year.
On to the game:
The RedWings are starting to slide into place where they should be at .500. They are going to hit a brick wall with a team that has won their last 10 at home scoring a 50-12 during that time. They have been averaging 5 goals in each of the 9 home games. Detroit will be withough Frans Nielsen and defenseman Niklas Kronwall again hoping to get Kronwall back for this weekend. There is just too much going for the maybe the hottest team in hockey right now. I’m picking the puck line tonight and crossing my fingers on a big win. Lets go Caps!
