Alex Ovechkin Calls His Shot

At yesterday's morning skate, Alex Ovechkin was asked about facing his former teammate, Olie Kolzig, and noted that "it's good he's going to play because we know where to shoot on him." Upon being further prodded, AO smiled and clarified: "Head high."

When made aware of those comments, Kolzig responded, "The difference was, in practice, when it was head high, I couldn't take any liberties because he was my teammate. Now? Heads up."

So how'd it play out during the game? Fast-forward to around the 1:50 mark of this clip:

You can't say he didn't warn you that he was coming upstairs, Olie. Oh, and we're still waiting on those "liberties."
