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).

He may have got away with an obvious interference call, but in a few minutes I guarantee they're going to nail him for boarding.

I'm fairly confident that was just a joke on the poster's part. It sounds like everyone was ripping on Ovie for doing something so dumb. I'm sure what happened on Sunday was just a coincidence.

Unless I'm misunderstanding something......
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

No, clearly it was a joke, the person was joking about what kind of call should have been made on the shove he gave the girl, I just thought it was funny that the person suggested he would end up getting nailed for boarding and then a couple weeks later he ends up getting suspended for boarding. Clearly coincidence.

I'd doubt you'd ever see Crosby shove a girl down... or touch one at all for that matter.

Because the girl would shove the camera toward Crosby and he would crumple up on the ground stiff as a board.

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.

The girl wasn't in his way, he was walking in a different direction when he decided to turn and go right for the camera, so that's a pretty weak argument. Not saying the guy is a complete ass or anything, but he certainly was a pretty poor loser during the olympics and also refused to talk to the media for most of the tournament as well (don't blame him for that, you want to focus on the tournament, but several other players fulfilled that responsibility).

I've been a huge Ovie supporter over the years, but I can't defend this one. Stupid move. Really immature when it comes down to it.

It's ok if you don't say he is a complete ass but I have no problem saying HE IS A COMPLETE ******* SAME AS DICKWAD CINDY!!!!!! :flush:

Actually I was picturing him popping his collar, calling his assistant for a hair touch-up and striking his best pose.


Ovie is a clown.

That was dumb, especially considering she was actually a Russian fan. Now, had she been some screaming teeny bopper Cindy fan...maybe :D

Does not compute. Entered data does not compute in the same sentence.


As far as Ovie... um, did it really look that bad? It looks like he just pushed the camera (which was in his face as he was speaking on the phone) out of his way. It was rude and uncalled for, but it wasn't like he threw her over a balcony.

The clip is edited. The beginning is cut off. In the real clip Ovechkin is walking in another direction, then suddenly reverses course and walks right to the camera. That's when this clip starts and the sound comes on. The original claim by this "female fan" was that OV broke her camera, there was nothing about sustaining any injuries.
Now, since we can't hear what made OV to come back toward her, we don't know what started the altercation.
I don't see any violence toward the actual person, rather than the camera in the clip.
The "broken" camera is working well enough to film OV walking away.
All in all, dumb move on Ovechkin's part, but I highly suspect that the actual event was very different from what this girl claimed.
