Canadians love Ovie

so sayeth Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail:

Canada’s Best Player against Canada’s Favourite Player.

Make that the World’s Favourite Player — at least in the world of imagination that is inhabited by the very young.

A nice write-up; and it’s not just children that love Ovechkin’s joy of playing — anyone who enjoys playing anything can probably relate to the post-goal celebrations, even if we can’t relate to the mind-boggling acrobatics that happen on his way to the net.  I don’t have as much hockey in my entire career as Ovie has in a single crazy, falling, back-handed drive at the net.
