Russian invasion!

Russian invasion! This year again both Maurice Richard and Art Ross Trophies will be showcased in the middle of the Red Square in Moscow. Thanks to Russian superstars Alex ‘the Great’ Ovechkin and Gino Malkin. With 56 goals scored Capitals Ovechkin has this trophy taken home for the second consecutive year. The gap between him and the second sniper Flyers Carter is 10 (ten!) goals. That’s amazing in my opinion. Eugene Malkin wins the Art Ross for first time with 113 points, but he was second last year having only one skater passed him. Who? You right – Alex Ovechkin who came second with 3 point deficit this season. Let me guess, this summer NHL award will show the same picture as last one did. The Russian embassy will send their guards to help Russian guys to bring home most of the trophies. I hope you haven’t forgotten such names as Nabokov, Datsyuk, Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov. Thanks God, it looks like we have Calder Trophy staying home this year. So, congratulations to Alex and Gino and... best regards to Don Cherry.
