just me or did MR get the best of Ovi almost everytime? Ovi had a few hits that to me were borderline cheap shots. MR lit him up though numerous times
Richards usually gets the best of him because he's smarter, and uses his body better when he hits and times them pretty good. Also, Richards just unnerves Ovechkin, and if Richards does best him in a hit or scoring chance, it can get him off his mental game I'm sure Mike doesn't mince his words out there. For a quiet guy, he's quite a chirper, he can set off a lot of goalies by his yapping.
There's just something about playnig agasint him that can get Ovechkin off his game. Richards has that abilty by his checking and coverage, being a pain in the ass to play against and that piss and vinegar. And that bad blood helps.
