More Morning Look: Fedorov Has a Fan

Courtesy Washington Capitals.

If you were a big Caps fan and were especially fond of Sergei Fedorov, one thing you might have done to celebrate his becoming the NHL's all-time leading Russian goal scorer would be to pump your fist. Possibly you could have stood up off your coach and raised your arms in the air. Maybe you might have downed a sip or two or red Gatorade to mark the occasion.

Another option would be to send 475 red carnations to Fedorov, one for each of Fedorov's goals, care of the Caps. Because that wouldn't be weird at all. The floral excess arrived yesterday, in all its rocking-the-red glory, although Fedorov went out and got hurt that night. Maybe next time roses would be better. I'm told that Fedorov was very appreciative of the gesture, if a bit taken aback. And since it's hard for one man to handle 475 flowers at once, he gave many of them to the team's office staff. So everybody wins. Except the Hurricanes.

(It's been a pretty juicy time for Caps blogs, as you might have noticed, but just in case you're a Redskins fan marooned in these parts on a relatively slow week, read especially about Semin and Ovechkin having juice-drenched pillow fights and view the marvelous Ovechkin bobblehead.)
