Pierre Lebrun of ESPN.com, reports “Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin was watching the Rangers practice on the Capitals bench when a Rangers trainer complained to the Capitals. Washington PR man Nate Ewell then asked Ovechkin to leave the area.”
It is very rare for players to be watching the oppositions practice as coaches like privacy.
When asked why he was watching the Rangers practice, Ovechkin joked that he sat there to “tick off” Rangers coach John Tortorella.
The Rangers lead the series, 2-0.
