Two seasons ago after Alex Ovechkin scored his 50th goal of the year against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Russian Machine celebrated by doing the “Hot Stick.” This led to a week’s worth of controversy, a Coach’s Corner by Don Cherry telling the GR8 to “get some class” & Ovechkin responding to the criticism by calling Cherry an “old guy” and proceeding to mock him by doing the robot in an ESPN interview with Rachel Nichols.

Well, if Ovechkin doing the robot wasn’t funny enough, YouTube user ElevateYourLevel did us the favor of creating the greatest Music Video of all time from the footage. He brilliantly combined Ovechkin’s greatest goals with an autotuned Rachel Nichols and an electronica beat made out of the Ovechkin phrase “don’t celebration when you score goal.” Which leads me to believe, bad grammar + house beat = win everytime. ElevateYourLevel, consider my level elevated. Everyone else, please enjoy.

Stick tap to Lindsay Novak for pointing out the video to me.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing this, it made my day too.

    ELEVATE YOUR LEVEL–the video creator name might prove informative to Ovie. This video demonstrates exactly what makes him great, what makes him an unstoppable force that strikes the fear of God in the opposition. Ovie got away from this type of game after the Olympics, especially after the Campbell hit and suspension IMO.

    With all modesty and humility I suggest to Ovie to spend some time during the off-season watching video of himself pre and post Olympics and evaluate for himself how and why he changed his game. Such instruction might prove useful in how he approaches next season when the Caps take to the ice again. It also might prove useful in his personal assessment of what it means to be the team Captain.
