Chest Bump For the Win

Ovechkin and Vokoun Chest Bump

With DJ King in the Washington Capitals’ lineup last night against the Ottawa Senators, I’m sure you can imagine how thrilled my seven year old daughter was. :) It was cool having her tell me every time he took the ice for his 6 minutes 58 seconds of ice time. Maybe he can get some more time next time. After all, he was credited with as many shots as Dennis Wideman, Jeff Halpern, Brooks Laich, Mike Knuble, Karl Alzner, and Roman Hamrlik combined and they had a total ice time of 104 minutes 28 seconds. Just sayin’.

It wasn’t the best game the Capitals have ever played, but it was far from the worst since Verizon Center became the place to Rock the Red. Any connection to the not very fancy stats above? I don’t know. Other people may have some opinions on that. People and blogs like The Peerless Prognosticator, Japer’s Rink, Russian Machine, Ed Frankovic, and DC Sports Page. I just take pictures and make odd observations‚Ķ Like, did anyone else notice the chest bump Alex Ovechkin and Tomas Vokoun shared after the game ended? Is this what replaces the shoulder bump Ovechkin and Nick Backstrom used to do but haven’t done yet this season? Has anyone else noticed this stuff? Anyway, I hope you enjoy my photos below or on flickr. I can’t wait for the new camera (by Thanksgiving, I hope).

    Ovi and Vokoun did a chest bump after the Pittsburgh game too – noticed it then and was on the lookout this time.
