Ovi, We Love You, But What the Puck Does This Mean?

The Washington Capitals’ Alexander Ovechkin is having a very good season. It may have started slowly for him, perhaps as he and new coach Adam Oates adjusted to each other’s style, but now, with five regular season games to go, Ovie is the NHL’s scoring leader with 28 goals. The playoffs are just around the corner. Oates told Yahoo Sports he thinks Ovechkin should “absolutely” be named the league’s MVP.

What’s Ovi’s reaction to all this? We’re not sure, exactly, but he did put this up on Twitter.

We hoped he was reacting to his and the team’s sensational run, so far, but in truth it’s his review of a YouTube video shot when he was teenage phenom with Dynamo Moscow. Which became clear in a second tweet:

Note to Ovi: Caps fans hope to be shouting “Chempiooni” themselves soon enough. The team has two away games and then three home games, starting Tuesday April 23, against the Winnipeg Jets.
