Alexander Ovechkin has gone back to Russia.....NOT TO PLAY! Hes gone back to be with his ailing grandfather. HE will miss the Washington Capitals Tuesday night game against the Nashville Predators.
Scotty's Take: I look for this to be a turning point in his season. I think hes hardly had anytime to be with family during the summer due to a whole bunch of media and stuff like that I look for him to get it together and most likely dedicate the rest of his season to his Grandfather.
