The Carolina Hurricanes are fighting for their season tonight at PNC Arena as they take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals in Game 6 action.

Taking front stage in the series, to the surprise of no one, has been Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. Whether it’s knocking out rookie Andrei Svechnikov or embarrassing defenseman blue liner Dougie Hamilton, no one was been a bigger factor in this series than Ovi.

If you missed the exchange between Ovechkin and Hamilton in Saturday’s Game 5… it’s strange. Watch Hamilton just completely give up on this loose puck, leading to a Capitals goal.

Check it out:

Pretty safe to assume that Hamilton, who is 6 foot, 6 inches and 230 pounds, got spooked by Ovechkin’s forecheck. Or maybe he just had a brain fart? In any case, not a good look…

In tonight’s game, Hamilton must have heard Ovi’s footsteps again as he sidesteps a HEAVY Ovechkin hit. Ovi pops up no worse for wear though and let’s Hamilton know exactly what he feels about him.

Love it… Ovi would fit in perfectly with the Bluth family…
