I can't remember if this was posted or not, but the incident happened shortly after Canada beat Russia in the quarterfinals. A young girl, Ovechkin fan, had a camera out and Ovechkin decided to try and take it away and ended up dusting her up a little bit I guess.
In any event, the real reason I'm posting this is a comment made at the bottom of the article, which appears to have predicted the future. (I came across this while looking up some things on the net that has absolutely nothing to do with hockey).
I dunno if "dusting her up" would be a good explanation. Looks like she was in his way, and I'd do the same and remove somebody from standing in front of me with a camera and blocking my path. The article also clearly exaggerates whatever harm was done if it were, at the worst case scenario, a "shove" while casually walking (not skating full speed on the ice), with "she escaped with contusions and bruises", and "brutally snatched" the camera, wow, the poor camera might have got touched -- so brutal. I bet he kicked her while she was on the ground, then went over to kick a puppy and spat in another fan's face with vodka before the camera re-focused on him walking away. He's such a sore loser.
