Is there even a video or a recording or really anything of Ovechkin actually saying this? Or just a tweet that Ovechkin didn't even tweet....
No check the link. Ovechkin is not gonna actually come on air and talk in First take. Skip Bayless and Steven A smith (two basketball fanatics), decided to talk/debate about the controversial comments ovechkin made after game 7 about the officials.
Watch the link
Edit: NVM i didnt kno that you were asking about what ovechkin said to the officials. My bad
I really hope Caps fans aren't blaming the refs for their loss in this series. If anything, blame Henrik Lundqvist. You can say that the rest of the Rangers' team sucks at hockey... but Hank is the reason you guys lost.
1. 5 powerplays not ending up with a goal scored does not mean there was no impact on the game, the fact that ovi doesn't play pk and he is the caps best player is significant.
2. They called ovi the best player in hockey (I don't think they have watched hockey for years)....
3. LOL at them calling it ridiculous for refs to rig games coming from basketball analysts.
Yeah, The fake righteousness is absurd. Sports are big business with huge money flowing around. The notion that suggesting corruption is some kind of outrage is ridiculous.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if the NHL steered outcomes in playoff series. It would speed up their parity goal/agenda of letting every team have a turn with the cup. I am not saying they are rigging games. I am just saying that it isn't an outrage to suggest it as possible or even probable.
