Fans had to order generic Capitals jerseys at Verizon Center on Monday...
Happy Birthday, Alex Ovechkin!
Team captain Alex Ovechkin is 27 today, which gives us an opportunity to (re)showcase some fabulous fan-art made by friends of Caps Outsider.
This is a new oil painting (finished over the weekend) by Justine Kenney. In fact, she painted the entire 2011-12 team!
Alex Ovechkin as a Simpsons character was drawn by Springfield Punx founder Dean Fraser. Check out his site for other characters he’s drawn.
LegOvechkin was created by Dave Delisle of Dave’s Geeky Ideas. Ovechkin has been flipping this puck around without fail since last January.
Happy birthday, Ovi!
