Alex Ovechkin gets his superstar status from his unbelievable ability to score goals and generate points. However, he doesn’t get nearly enough credit for his physical play. While the US/Canada game is grabbing the headlines, it was Ovechkin and his Russian mates putting the hurt on the Czech Republic and specifically Alex’s CRUSHING hit on former NHL legend Jaromir Jagr. As he takes the puck up the ice, Jagr gets completely run over by Ovechkin turning over the puck to the Russkies and seconds later Evgeni Malkin scores a stunningly gorgeous goal to win the game. Wow.
Of course, the IOC won’t allow any of their footage on the Internet, so you’ll have to click the link here for the video. Do it though, it’s fucking AMAZING.
