Ovechkin's hair looking wacky during game

What gives with Alexander Ovechkin’s wild and crazy, out-of-control hair during Thursday night’s tilt between the Washington Capitals and the Tampa Bay Lightning? Did he attempt to inject some electricity into his offensive game by sticking his finger a light socket? How Ovechkin looks in the screengrab resembles how I imagine Albert Einstein would have looked had he chose a...

Lightning drop sixth straight in loss to Capitals

Everything that could have went against the Lightning did as they lose their sixth straight after the loss to the Washington Capitals 4-3.  The Lightning were outshot 12-6 in the first period but managed to go into the intermission tied at 1-1. But a bad attempt on a glove save by Mathieu Garon and turnovers once again led to goals for the opposition. In the third period, a shot...
