That was a nasty hit Dups took, and with his head slamming right on the edge of the boards could have easily resulted into a much more serious injury. Perhaps, I'm just being a homer on that though.
I'm really looking forward to the game tomorrow night against the Caps, yet I keep thinking that Ovechkin might be super-amped for the match-up with an opponent that has two of the best players in the league opposed to him, and add the fact that the Pens kicked his ass and team out of the playoffs last year.
What if his emotions get the best of him and it turns into another situation where he makes a dirty play and seriously hurts one of our players?
Can't wait for the game, but am I over-thinking what Ovechkin might do?
