Remember a few months ago when we reported that Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin would star in an “unusual and somewhat provocative” music video with Katyla Lel? Well today that song, entitled “Let Them Talk,” debuted on YouTube and yes, I need to talk about this.

We’ve got CGI’d flying pucks, angry Ovi faces, and groping – lots and lots of groping.

Who are these people?

This Washington Capitals team features two prominent foreign rookies: Swede Andre Burakovsky and Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov. You’d think these names are not that hard to pronounce, but I guess not. Television people butchered them last week.

Our first offender is ABC 7’s Tim Brant, who is a cool dude, but must now get a timeout.

In what will hopefully be a never-ending series, CSN Washington’s Jill Sorenson interviewed third-line amigos Joel Ward and Jason Chimera in a segment aptly called Wardo and Chimmer. In the video, the friends, who filmed one of the funniest videos of last year, explained when was the exact moment they fell in love.

“I don’t know if it was love at first sight,” Ward explained.

“Sometimes love takes a long time to build,” Chimera countered.

I don’t know; you just have to see this.

During the first Coach’s Corner segment of the season (now half as long! Thank you, Sportsnet), outspoken analyst and big Maple Leafs fan Don Cherry discussed the Leafs’ approach to drafting under the new regime. As always, it was hilarious, maybe even intentionally so.

Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green missed opening night, still healing up from an upper-body injury. Green made his debut in Boston on Saturday and scored on a beautiful one-timer from the point.

The goal was made possible by Russian rookie Evgeny Kuznetsov, playing in Nicklas Backstrom’s spot on the second power play unit, who found Green with a perfect pass from across the ice.

Look at this.

A few weeks ago, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin hosted a private skate for children with developmental disabilities. It was a cute skate, but the cute meter went to 11 when Ovechkin was asked out on a date by Ann, a 10-year-old who has Down syndrome.

Now that’s a confident woman.

After playing her request off that day, the bachelor decided to have Ann’s entire family over for dinner at Verizon Center on Sunday. After they watched the Capitals beat the Hurricanes 5-2.

It’s about as adorable as you can imagine. Wait, actually no. It’s moar than that.
