So, now that punishment for Alexander Ovechkin's hit on Zbynek Michalek has been dispensed, the calendar shows his next game as being on February 4 at Montreal. While that seems like an eternity away, I think we can all agree that the Washington Capitals' captain is in need of some battery recharging from time to time. So behold, some things that Ovechkin may be able to do during this league-imposed exile:
The noted soccer fan doe not get many chances to see two top teams play one another, so maybe he's up for a trip to Barcelona to catch a Clasico match-up with Real Madrid?
Why even consider going to cold-ass Ottawa when you can enjoy an All-Star game of a different sport in a far more agreeable climate?
So how else should Ovechkin spend the next 11 days until he boards the charter to Montreal?
