Caps Make Big Changes in Net
After receiving average goaltending for the better part of this season, Washington has decided to make some moves regarding the team’s netminders. Big moves.
No trades or AHL recalls here, just a position swap.
Experiencing stat woes of his own, Alex Ovechkin has decided to switch his position on the ice. No, he’s not playing defense, we all know how well that has gone. You guessed it, Ovi is now playing goalie. Forget Olie the Goalie, the Caps now have Ovi the Goalie…or Goalvie, I guess.
So you don’t believe us? Good. While Ovi isn’t switching to play goalie anytime soon, he did, however, swap gear with teammate Michal Neuvirth and took a few shots in net during Friday’s team practice. Who knows, maybe he even learned a thing or two about scoring goals by watching from another perspective.
