Dominating the WorldPosted on May 13, 2014 by Adam Stringham
The Washington Capitals organization is well represented, with 9 players (well 8 now), participating in this year's IIHF World Championship. Here are some quick hits on the tourney and other Capitals related news.
1. Russian Captain, Alexander Ovechkin, leads all players with 6 points through his first 3 games of the tournament (3-3-6). Two of Ovie's goals have come on the PP while the other was scored on a penalty shot against USA goaltender Tim Thomas.
NBCSN still found a reason to talk about Ovechkin's regular season +/- during the broadcast; so I thought I should note that he is +4 so far in the tournament.
2. The Nemesis of Bathroom Doors, Joel Ward, leads all Canadians in scoring through his team's first three tilts (3-1-4).
Re: Trotz, here are three tweets from Friday that might change your perception of him a little. pic.twitter.com/EFtFa02v0J— JapersRink (@JapersRink) May 12, 2014
This might be the smartest comment I've ever seen in a Hockey News mailbag. pic.twitter.com/2rF2xlYl35— Arik Parnass (@ArikParnass) May 9, 2014
