Alex Ovechkin Gets Beer Tossed on Him After Slashing Kris Letang (Video)
There’s a saying in Pittsburgh: “Slash a Penguin, get some free beer.” That’s not actually a saying, but it could be after last night. Caps superstar Alex Ovechkin treated Penguins defenseman Kris Letang to a slash as the two raced for the puck in the Penguins’ zone.
The Pittsburgh fans decide to show their appreciation by launching beers on the ice in the general direction of Alex Ovechkin. Seems fair.
Here’s the video. It’s hard to see the infraction because of the commotion, but once you do, it’s clear and it’s pretty egregious:
YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THAT, ALEX! YOU SHOLD KNOW THAT BY NOW!
And that’s when Pens fans responded by throwing beer at Ovi:
This seems to be a pretty proportionate response. If it was May, and the weather was nice, it would be a little less understandable, but it’s February, there’s not even basketball on at the moment, and it’s freezing everywhere.
Beer showers it is.
