Montreal Gazette: Ovechkin only looks old, but he doesn’t slow down
MOSCOW, 25 Nov – Renowned columnist for the Canadian Montreal Gazette Stu Cowan admired the performance of the Russian captain of the Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin in the National Hockey League (NHL) regular season match with the Montreal Canadiens.
The meeting ended with the victory of the “Capitals” with a score of 6: 3. Ovechkin scored an assistant hat-trick with three assists. Cowen devoted a separate article to the performance of the Russian forward in his column, publishing it under the headings “There is no sign that Ovechkin is slowing down.”
“When Ovechkin takes off his helmet, because of his gray hair and beard, he looks like some old hockey players with whom I sometimes play. But in fact, Ovechkin is far from old, he just looks like that. He’s like Tom Brady on skates, short of perfect hair for the 44-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback. Ovechkin is the fourth most NHL sniper of all time and needs 150 goals to beat the great Wayne Gretzky. five-year contract. That’s why Alex can break Gretzky’s record. Are you sure you are going to bet against him? ” – wrote Cowan.
In 20 games this season, 36-year-old Alexander Ovechkin scored 33 points (15 goals + 18 assists).
