[Update: I’ve updated the headline, since a number of our readers feel I was just grasping for a story that’s not there. We’re not grasping for anything, or trying to make anything more of what it is. It’s an interesting moment, to us, before the Capitals and Canadiens game where Ovechkin likely inadvertently sprayed one of the kids the Habs has on the ice before each game. Most likely, I will never mention this again. Did Carey Price have a bad moment himself for the Habs tonight, that actually affected the game? Yes, he did and we talked about it earlier tonight and will certainly cover it tomorrow.]
I’m just going to leave this out there for you guys. Personally, I don’t think Ovechkin did it on purpose but he certainly wasn’t paying attention to what he was doing as he came to a stop. Your thoughts?
“He’s made some great plays for us early on – power play and five-on-five for the Okposo goal – but we need to get more out of Sam, moving his feet more, playing a little bit faster, a little bit quicker and providing a little bit more offense for our team.”
The Sabres, without two key forwards in Jack Eichel and Evander Kane with long-term injuries, which would help explain the team’s early offensive issues, conclude a four-game road trip Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Sabres also called up forward Hudson Fasching and defenseman Casey Nelson from Rochester in the AHL.
P.K. Subban clearly had a blast as Titans’ 12th man
This GIF of him using a sword feels like it will get some mileage on Twitter. After totally convincing other people about your sports/political/hot-dog-being-a-sandwich opinion, and then drop the P.K. dagger:
"You have to get everybody emotionally ready for the start of the game, and I felt I did that."
