“Watching Ovie in Prague!” (Photo credit: @mneuvirth30)
Dynamo Moscow traveled to Prague Tuesday to take on HC Lev Praha and if Alex Ovechkin took a peak at the crowd near his defending goal, he would see a familiar face. Washington Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who’s currently playing for Sparta Praha of the Czech Extraliga league, got tickets for the game to cheer Ovi on.
Interestingly enough, Neuvirth’s Sparta Praha plays in the same building that Lev normally competes in, Tipsport Arena, despite being in different leagues. Today’s game however, was played a few miles to the east in the bigger and more modern O2 Arena. So the travel for Neuvirth was light. But still, we must extend props to the man for showing some Caps solidarity and rooting on his captain.
