WASHINGTON -- "Where's No. 8?"

That was the immediate question with 1:02 left in the third period and the Washington Capitals trailing the Anaheim Ducks by a goal on Tuesday night. Tomas Vokoun had been yanked for an extra skater; so where was No. 8 for Anaheim, Teemu Selanne, trying to tally the 23rd hat trick of his career with an empty-netter and complete a five-point night?

"No, stupid ... where's the other No. 8?"

The Capitals had six skaters on the ice and none of them were Alex Ovechkin. He was benched

The captain. The dude with 306 career goals and 52 game-winning goals. The meal ticket, the franchise, the guy with the wax statue down the road at the museum.

As Coach Bruce Boudreau talked to his troops, Keith Jones of VERSUS was between the benches opining:


"If you're the Capitals' Bruce Boudreau, you want to get the guys that are going in this game on the ice. Ovechkin, of course, is going to be one of those guys. But why not have Joel Ward on the ice? Deserving of that because of the way he played in this game. Chimera on the ice, a guy that's been all over the puck. That's what Boudreau has to contemplate right now."

After Boudreau was done diagramming, he turned to Ovechkin, shook his head briefly as he said something, stepped on the bench and walked around him. Ovechkin looked agitated. He dropped an F-bomb. He then dropped an F-bomb with an adjective "fat" in front of it as players like Chimera and Ward took the ice.

The result: Nicklas Backstrom scored the game-tying goal with 42 seconds left. Assisted by Jason Chimera and Brooks Laich. Without Ovechkin or Alex Semin on the ice.

Naturally, this all led to clutching of the pearls over a player cussing about his coach's decision and questions about a rift between a star player and his coach. All of which ignores the fact that Ovechkin's reaction and Bruce Boudreau's "gut" are both the type of things that are eventually going to win the Stanley Cup for the Capitals.
