Defenseman Dmitry Orlov(notes) is making his NHL debut for the Washington Capitals tonight against the Phoenix Coyotes, and News From The Nosebleeds decided to commemorate the occasion … by doctoring up an Alex Ovechkin(notes) T-shirt.
OK, so they needed the 'O' and the '8'. Still, the sight of this thing at a time when Alex Ovechkin is getting criticized for his lack of production and being portrayed as a coach killer turned a few heads during warm-ups.
Most likely a Tribute Jersey to Orlov. Perhaps a Protest Jersey. Either way, not a Foul.
Now, what are all of those Alex Semin shirsy owners going to do if this healthy scratch portends the Semin's climax in Washington?
