As we noted this morning, Alex Ovechkin was named D.C. Sportsman of the Year at last night's Sneaker Ball. It was a repeat performance for AO (in the only two years the award has been handed out), who also took home the award for "best play" for this amazing individual effort in Game 5 of the Rangers series (which beat out Semyon Varlamov's save on Sidney Crosby, among nominees).

Ovechkin wasn't the only Cap honored at the event, however, as vice president and general manager George McPhee was named Sports Executive of the Year (narrowly, we presume, edging out Jim Bowden and Vinny Cerrato).
