Ovechkin hosting Alberta family on the road vs. Flames


You remember Cash, the fan decked out in Washington Capitals gear in Edmonton who Alex Ovechkin dumped a stick over the glass for? Well, he and his family have taken the 8-year-old's birthday celebration out on the road with the Capitals.

Because a game-used stick simply wouldn't suffice for a loyal supporter (who could just as easily lay his allegiances with that Connor McDavid fella), Ovechkin invited Cash and his family a couple hundred miles or so south to be in attendance for Sunday's game versus the Calgary Flames.

Ovechkin will meet one of his biggest, if not the biggest fan he has in Western Canada after the game.
