Bulls & Bears: Alex Ovechkin is a true Russian bear

  • Alex Ovechkin exhales as he’s surrounded by his teammates after defeating the Penguins in Round 2

When asked about his high first pitch, Ovechkin said it was because he is "too strong" before adding "you always have to have a second chance so I did it".

With the Stanley Cup and all his fellow champions behind him, Ovi took the nonchalant approach to his first heave from the mound, complete with shorts and flip-flops to go along with his custom Nats jersey, and it was clear from the get-go why he plays a sport that requires skating on ice rather than one that requires he at least pretend he knows how to throw a baseball. And that's probably maybe a little symbolic that that ball went that way. "I got that here, so, whatever it takes, hopefully we can work something out".

He's now a Stanley Cup champion as owner of a team that Forbes Magazine rates as the 11-richest in the National Hockey League at $625 million, a return on investment for Leonsis of 735 per cent (39 per cent per year over 19 years). Sitting next to a parched Ovechkin afterward, defenceman John Carlson quipped, "It wasn't good". Ovechkin continued to drink his bottle of water.

Trump said Friday that the Washington Capitals , who clinched the Stanley Cup on Thursday night, are likely to be invited. So I want to give him full credit when his team beats the Cleveland Cavaliers for another league championship.

"Can't win them all, but I love the team", said Paul, a fan. Wilson then poured beer down his throat before dumping some on left wing Andre Burakovsky.

Wearing a white Nationals jersey with his captain's "C" on the front and his No. 8 on the back, the Stanley Cup champion and Conn Smythe Trophy victor asked for the ball back and connected with Scherzer on his second try.

Goaltender Braden Holtby held up the Stanley Cup when the camera flashed to the Capitals after the seventh-inning stretch. Oshie lifted his shirt over his head and took a shot through the fabric. Martinez asked Trotz to address his team. "It's so important for a team to have that sort of "I love coming to work" attitude, which our guys did, and you can do some pretty special things". I want to be part of a great team. "I think no one still can believe like we did and we are right now Stanley Cup champions. It's going to be great to share that with them".
