Ovie's Broken Schnoz

Not only is Alex Ovechkin proving to be the best player in hockey right now, he's also turning into a great quote, despite his broken english.

"Today was special day. I broke my nose, I have stitches, I score four goals. Everything go to my face. It's the fifth time I broke my nose. It's okay."

That was after a 4 goal, 5 point game against Montreal, which ended with Ovie getting the overtime goal.

There's also an article by Mike Wise who reported this exchange with the young Russian superstar:

"How badly did it hurt?" he was asked of the hit that fractured his schnoz.
"I get used to it."

"It look bigger, yeah?" he added.

"Yeah, it's swollen," a reporter replied.
