ovi-hits-semin

Way back in November, Igor and I spoke to Dmitry Orlov’s best friend Alex Burmistrov in Hershey. When we asked Burmistrov about his friendship with his fellow Russian, the Jets forward said, “I don’t think either one of us ever hit another when we played against each other.”

Alex Ovechkin and Alex Semin do not have such an agreement.

With fifteen minutes left in the second period of Sasha Bowl IV, Ovechkin and Semin raced for a puck along the boards. Semin did not make it there.

Here’s a closer shot of it. (GIF by welshhockeyfan)

With no regard for his bff, Ovechkin totally counter-hit Semin to the ice and snatched up the loose puck.

The hit was so bone-rattling that Semin later had to dig deep into the crevices of his Sashaness to make sure everything was in its correct place.

The Caps beat the Canes three out of four times this season. They’re two points out of first place and .500 again. In addition to rocking his best friend, Ovechkin is now rocking the rest of the NHL. He’s third in goals and first in shots. Good stuff.
