for tonights game. Well, not so strangely since the Caps dropped the Sens 4-1 back in November, which makes the Senators a team with something to prove during this game (did I mention that the Caps snapped an 8 game win streak for the Sens in November?). And AO is questionable for tonight's game. Definitely a little nervous.
There is nothing like a little rival bashing to take my mind off being nervous, so here is a bit of controversy from the Pens-Caps game:
Ovechkin went almost immediately to the visitors' locker room at Mellon Arena for medical treatment after suffering the cut. But he said he had to wait for the Penguins' medical staff to finish tending to a Pittsburgh player, and therefore ended up missing the rest of the game.
Coach Bruce Boudreau was not pleased by the delay.
"You make your assumptions on that," Boudreau said. "I don't know why. I'm just told that it took upwards of a half-hour."
Ovechkin added: "If he comes earlier, maybe I play. I don't know. It's over now."
