I’ve never seen a human being so happy to win a title as this guy. It was must watch television when he took his little tour with the Stanley Cup. I would’ve been perfectly OK with it going on for another 15 minutes.
Everyone who knows the tiniest bit about modern hockey knows this guy’s been criticized for not leading the Capitals to postseason success, despite being one of the best players in regular season play. And in this modern age some guys get pegged as being about themselves and their money, not their team and winning.
Well his reaction right after the game, and today’s insta post, show Ovechkin only cared about one thing this whole time.
And he finally got it.
