Alex Ovechkin’s 50th Goal Celebration

The Capitals’ Alexander Ovechkin scored his 50th goal of the season recently and this feat led to a unique celebration that has created some controversy.  Some observers feel that the celebration was excessive and not warranted for someone scoring his 50th goal of a season, since a good number of players have hit the 50 mark in a seson over the years.  Here is a video of the goal and celebration:

I don’t have a problem with this celebration.  Ovechkin is the first player to hit 50 this season and he has an exhuberance for playing the game that is enjoyable to watch. The NHL could use some players who are entertainers who bring some fun to the games.  I enjoy watching Ovechkin much more than his rival Sidney Crosby, who usually looks miserable during games and just doesn’t seem as if he’s enjoying himself.  Ovechkin, on the other hand, looks like he really enjoys playing and seems as though he’s having fun.  Don’t lose that zest for the game!
