Alex Ovechkin earned the first of what promises to be several post-season awards, named Player of the Year by The Sporting News.
Alexander the Great, indeed. All Ovechkin did was score 65 goals, the most by an NHL player since 1996, win the Art Ross Trophy with 112 points and lead a charge by the Capitals from last place to a Southeast Division title.
Mike Green was named to TSN's all-star team as well, joining Nicklas Lidstrom on the defense.
Congratulations to both!
