On top of that, Ovie is making headlines for his open-ice destruction of Jaromir Jagr.
This massacre is already being called "The Hit", which is funny because the play is not something completely out of the ordinary for the best hockey player in the world. My favorite part of the hit is not just that Ovie is garnering all the love for being a badass, but that he crushed Jaromir freakin' Jagr, aka public enemy #2 of Caps fans, behind Crosby. Of all the players in the world, Jagr may even be the guy I want Ovie to crush the most; the beautiful symbolism of the Caps successful present and bright future crushing the bad memory of the past is just too perfect.
Note: the original video posted was removed, the best clip I could find is the attached one and I have no idea why a cat playing the piano is involved.
