Alex Ovechkin, prepare to bleed. A lot.

NEW YORK — The New York Rangers had an interested observer sitting on the visitor’s bench as they took the ice for their pregame skate Monday morning. Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin was watching the Rangers practice when a Rangers trainer complained to the Capitals.

Washington PR man Nate Ewell then asked Ovechkin to leave the area. “Alex was just looking for a place to relax. He likes being by the ice,” said Ewell. “As soon as he found out it made the Rangers uncomfortable, he left.”

When asked why the Rangers wanted him to leave, Ovechkin joked: “Because they’re afraid of me.”

When asked why he did it, Ovechkin joked that he sat there to “tick off” Rangers coach John Tortorella. His answer drew many laughs from reporters.

The Capitals will need a lot of band-aids.

    Looks like the Rags did a good job making him bleed.

  2. The Northerner Says:

    The Rangers pussed out on that one. They get shut down 4-0, they don’t get Ovechkin for his comments, and they do nothing while he dances at center ice after the game.

  3. C Gally Says:

    Sean Avery decided to take all the penalty minutes by sitting on the goalie and punching guys for no reason. He’s like a dumb Scotty Hartnell.

    /realizes the redundancy of that statement

  4. The Northerner Says:

    Yeah, well at least he did Elisha Cuthbert FIRST.
