"Did you hear this kick the coverage? Alexander Ovechkin is the best hockey player in the playoffs. Right now. The doesn't regularly fight. He knocks out eight nineteen year old head hits the ice that nineteen year old is probably not going to play for the remainder of the series. Ovechkin gets a five minute penalty for fighting. That's the extent of his entire punishment. I've asking the question if Kevin Durant knocked out Patrick Beverley, Beverly then hits his head is he falls down has it concussion. He's out for the remainder of the series. Mike attention for you is Kevin Durant. Get suspended for the rest of the playoffs. Alexander. Ovechkin gets five minutes, clearly the culture of basketball and hockey when it comes to fighting is different basketball has worked to eliminate all fighting hockey still allows it. To occur. My question for you is why would the vast majority of you say, you know, what the NBA got it. Right. Kevin Durant has to be out for the remainder of the season.

Or the fact that the left dill city, thunder whatever it is Durant's the best player in the game. Not really all that close. Hartson unbelievable score. But hit takes him, so many possessions, and so many dribbles and so many mismatch in order to get what he needs to get. Whereas Durant though, he doesn't scores much has the ball far less. One of the things is the west isn't as good as it was less. Because of injury. I I think Golden State is different. But I don't think anybody in the league thinks that Houston is close to what they were last year because of their fit around heart. The Doug Gottlieb show that did say three PM eastern, noon Pacific on Fox Sports radio off. We get it all the time. What we're expecting to happen happens.

"Here we are the stanley cup in my hotel room and so i'm gonna tell you about david david is nobody i know in canadian media is a bigger fan of alexander ovechkin than david amber is david is the guy when he got hired when he took over in his new role hawking at a couple of years ago our first big thing together was the world cup of hockey and he was saying to us that of alexander we always make these jobs with him valid sander eskin does such and such a pace he's gonna break wing gretzky's record for most goals and we would always look at him and say david it's not going to happen he's not gonna do that what you said you said david you're an idiot okay i was trying to be polite and you know it's a running joke with us whenever ovechkin scores or if he has a couple dozen score we're like okay david what's what's the projection how close is he had and the best part about this was i did a sit down with ovechkin during the world cup and i'm like i gotta ask him about this vets game was a bit distracted during that one he's normally very good interview but it was after practice in the team bus was getting ready to leave could see just timing wasn't ideal but i asked him do you think you can break gretzky's record for goal and he looked at me like i was nuts and he goes it was the most animated answer goes there's not a chance i can do it but you are the biggest ovechkin believer listen earlier this year and i'm not alone in this this is what i said about it let's be clear 'cause you're kind of more picket story i said was if alexander ovechkin wants to break gretzky's record he can do it and this is what i meant if you wanted to play it out like armor yager certainly leonsis will let him play out as long as he wants i think i think he's earned that right in these incredibly healthy we've seen alexander ovechkin never gets injured miss more games due to suspend than injury throughout his career if he went on a pace where he's going from the fifty goal seasons to forty goals seasons thirty seasons but he did this for another essentially twelve years he could break wing gretzky's wreck.

"They dropped those first two games to the columbus blue jackets then they lost a couple of games to the tampa bay lightning when they fell behind in that series and so going into game three of the stanley cup final that we're actually four and five at home this postseason but now they have won three consecutive games in their own arena great the city is excited the fence excited and you know but again it's only two we just have to move forward and don't think about too much alexander ovechkin he and the capital's my opinion turned the corner in game six of the east finals that was an elimination game that was the game where you saw the physical play really make a difference and it's the stars for the capitals who are out there setting the tone and i said then and i'll say now here they are with three consecutive wins in their own arena and they've got the to one lead in the stanley cup final now we talked about this a little bit during the golden knights historic run to this point they really hadn't been challenged a lot they hadn't been pushed to the brink for sure they did lose the first game was the first game against the jets the series in the west final they dropped the opener but then they won four consecutive games after that and so they haven't been in a place where it's real uncomfortable let's face it their road to this point has been fairly simple fairly i don't wanna see easy that's wrong but it's not been full of adversity whereas the capitals have really had to fight and scratch and claw to get to the stanley cup final not to mention having to go through their nemesis in the pittsburgh penguins and so i wondered how that would play in the fact that the capitals are a little more battletested now the individual guys on the golden knights have been through james neal for instance and marc andre fleury but the fact that they hadn't really had to grit their teeth and face the reality that this could be the end for them and so here they are now having to adjust and having to recognize that they're getting pretty close to the do or die you know it's it's it's not impossible if you fall into three one whole you're not dead but.

"But now ovechkin has broken through and he will play for the stanley cup for the first time in his career and any other year any other year this would be the storyline alexander ovechkin one of the top five players in the nhl always a bridesmaid never a bride finally breaks through and makes the stanley cup because again this is not like a ray bork situation ovechkin haning even been to the dance yet let alone lost when he once he got there so just him breaking through to get to a stanley cup final and there's no doubt that he's the best player on the ice in terms of skaters now we've discussed the the how important goaltenders are but ovechkin as far as skaters is the best player on the ice so any other year this would be the story and it's not it's still vegas that shows you just how remarkable this vegas story is that even less than twenty four hours after the washington capitals were able to clinch respond the stanley cup final people are reverting back to discussing the nights now that they're in it as well so it's just very interesting to me that a superstar player has finally gotten a chance to cement his legacy 'cause again in the if we're making the dan marino comparison all of what it took i believe for dan marino is one super bowl victory and he might be regarded as the best quarterback of all time many would have that discussion he's not even in the debate right some people debate brady some people debate elway some people debate montana that's kind of the shortlist if marino has won championship that's less a montana one less than elway one lesson brady one but there'd be plenty of people who would be saying that dan marino is the best quarterback in the history of the nfl heck he doesn't even have more championships and peyton manning who his greatness is devalued a little bit because of how many championships that brady has won so vetch can has a chance to cement his legacy and still all anyone wants to talk about are these vegas golden knights from out in the middle of the desert that are playing for a stanley cup in.

"Tonight we have game seven in the east final in the stanley cup playoffs washington taking on tampa and before we get into why i think that this could be one of the worst losses potentially of alexander veterans career let's let's hear from lovie on his thoughts about tonight's game both teams have those games going to be hard it's going to be interesting it's gonna be fun you know you play hockey because this moment so the one game so there's alexander ovechkin he is real quickly let's see he is owen one owen too one into one in three one in four two and four two and five two and six three in six three and seven in game sevens oviously now something that i unearthed it wasn't hard but some i looked at you know the the camps in alexander ovechkin lost three consecutive playoff appearances not three straight years three because there was one year where they didn't make the playoffs right he lost in three consecutive playoff appearances to the new york rangers which is interesting because most people including us acquaint his his playoff misery to sidney crosby up right but i i think it's maybe we have short memories maybe it's just because of crosby and ovechkin the fact that they're going to be intertwined forever given where they were drafted and everything like that but i think if they were to lose tonight there's no the face of alexander ovechkin playoff misery is sidney crosby right right or wrong that is the perception if he loses tonight the face of alexander ovechkin playoff misery is alexander ovechkin he has played great there's no doubt about it but dan marino was a great quarterback and the dolphins one nothing but they went to the super bowl k to say there is the will there is a little something but by but the perception is very similar right dan marino great player no one blames dan marino right for the dolphins non winning a super bowl maybe in some playoff exits or in games you can blame dan marino but for the most part it was dan marino was so great and you either say but he didn't win anything or the team around him was bad or whatever justification qualifier you wanna put it in their defense championship apparently.

"I think there's some you know obviously we've asked that and you're asking to explain the inexplicable to a degree there is a little bit of fewer distractions on the road it you would think while you're sleeping in your own bed and well sometimes your own bed means you're two and a half year old is waking up at three in the morning and a lot of these guys have small kids and that can be that can be thing i think we're just trying to prop up reasons for phenomenon that's very difficult to figure out i do think that whatever if you're if you're capitals fan preparing for tonight's game the fact that you're seven and one on the road gives you great solace in thinking about the rest of the series and so now the west whatever western team gets in there we'll we'll have home field yes because they had more points or whatever home something rather yes yes they will and vegas one last night to go up to two one so if you're a sports writer wondering whether you might end up making winnipeg in vegas yes so i dunno we'll we'll see i do think this is kind of if they are indeed different than the past and they have responded to all these kind of road box and humps along the way if they're really different than they will win tonight's game and almost put their foot on campus throat so i have a question for which i do not know the answer although i probably should it's easy to say that alexander ovechkin in very big moments is a gag or say that about the world cup.

"Thirty one eighteen what do you have for me tonight my friends chris paul joins alexander ovechkin in reaching the conference finals for the first time in their careers that is incredible future hall of famers ironically i think both play i've played thirteen years getting to a conference final now the easy question would be who had the better career fetch veteran skin better shots reached the final skin although i'll tell you what tampa bay is kind of the golden state warriors of hockey this year i mean they are absolutely loaded they can thank the new york rangers for that trading mcdonagh and those guys at the trade deadline but tampa bay that's not an easy team to get past and of course neither the golden state warriors but what a great story for both but meanwhile it's a great story this year what for twelve years before this guy has had the success now i think chris paul has been handed a shorter stick for his career playing in what nor charlotte new orleans with the clippers veterans one presidents cups with the capitals before they've been the best team in hockey before and they just can't get it done so i'll give chris paul more of a pass for taking so long to get to a conference finals then i will alex of educate i'll ask you this thing out of those two players chris paul who has more pressure on them reach the final final it's the cup final the nba finals yeah is it chris paul of a veteran consider this is chris paul's last chance to get nba i think it's still a veteran because you said it earlier a veterans had the greater career than chris paul chris paul chris paul's lastchance thirtythree and you get hold thirty three yeah because he played a couple of years in college well play eighteen years yeah you're right these guys come in at twenty although veg get if you think about it he's been flying since he's twenty years old as well right he doesn't necessarily golden for those guys last forever looking joggers forty.

"Sidney crosby is the bane of alexander ovechkin existence alexandra veteran is always compared and always compared on favorably sidney crosby and for reason sidney crosby has won stanley cup sidney crosby has one world championships sidney crosby has won olympic gold medals and scored the goal that enabled canada to win that alex ovechkin doesn't have any of that but what else can has is a goal with one oh seven ago last night that he threw off the post and then held the stick up as if it was batting practice didn't skate by the goal knocked in on the rebound that is the goal that wins four three the game there was like no scoring in the first period and then there was a lot of scoring we can get to tom we gonna barry's beluga on later who was at the game tom wilson is he's george atkinson he's a strong safety who wants to kill people who needs to be outlawed and this is true he needs to be outlawed he was not called for a penalty broke guys headline last night he was not dramatic head is your all your head he broke his head implies the whole thing he was not he get a concussion dot called for penalty at all would not surprise any of us if upon review he get something he gets something he didn't win or lose the game i'm not gonna go much further with this because i don't know anything about hockey but i will say two things one barry melrose is now turning to the caps and he was hating on the caps after game one and just thought they stunk he's now turning to the cavs and in the last series the washington capitals play they went down two one four in a row in this when they went down to one and one two in a row and they could win four in a row pittsburgh in winning games against philadelphia scored five five seven and eight goals they're not close to that so the only take away the only reasonable takeaway at the washington capitals defense is far superior to the philadelphia flyers defense and.
