Photo: Alex Ovechkin in his captain's sweater

Here's a shot from Post photographer Toni Sandys of Alex Ovechkin with his new captain's 'C:'


(Toni L. Sandys/The Washington Post)


Here's the full story from Tarik.

Also, here's a quote on Ovechkin from countryman Ilya Kovalchuk, via the Atlanta Thrashers:

"I would like to congratulate Alex on being named captain. He is a great player and a leader of their team, so I think he is a great choice and deserves to be their captain. I am proud that another Russian is getting this honor."

More to come later -- we hope. The blog is having some tech issues, as you may have noticed, but with any luck, they'll be resolved soon.

Carlson another goal tonight against Canada... a shot from the point

I don't think he has the hardest shot out there but from what I've seen, he hits the net with it.

Whats with the picture? It looks so majestic, like something that should be hung at the top of a staircase in a mansion.
