Alex Ovechkin sounds pretty excited to face the Penguins


Sure, there’s probably a Debbie Downer here or there who will complain about Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.

(This post is on the Internet, where you can find a person to complain about virtually anything.)

Most hockey fans and observers are giddy with excitement about these two teams facing off for the first time since 2009.

It doesn’t hurt that, after seeing both franchises stumble seriously in the intervening years, it seems like both the Penguins and Capitals are in a relatively good place. Washington won the Presidents’ Trophy while the Penguins have been called the hottest team in the NHL right now.

Alex Ovechkin sure seems excited, too, as you can see in the video above.
