True. It was a bit much in terms of...style (I thought I was watching an opera when he looked like he was going to weep), but still totally ok.
I wonder, though, if one compares to how PK gets treated by the opposition, if this opens the door to other teams crushing Yakupov. There's sort of an unwritten rule about rookies, but PK got so much crap. I'd like to see Yakupov deal with a little more heat aside from Quick giving him the stink eye. He's not unlike Ovechkin who does that stuff to this day so the celebration thing is, if anything, so passť.
