Capitals to keep paper towels in the crease for the remainder of season

Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin said he would be happy to keep a paper towel in the bottom of his crease.

Ovechin’s decision comes after he was found to have touched the bottom half of the creasing of his mask while playing in the NHL’s Western Conference semifinals against the Nashville Predators on Sunday.

Ovi said he didn’t realize his head was being cut off, and it was an accident.

“It’s probably one of the best things I’ve done in my career,” Ovechank said.

“It’s something that I think was very unintentional.

I thought it was kind of a funny thing to do, and then I was watching it happen, and I was like, ‘Well, I guess it’s a good thing that I didn’t notice.’

It’s funny because it wasn’t intentional.

So I’m glad that I wasn’t aware of it.”

The Capitals will keep paper towel storage at their locker room, Ovechuk said.

He also said he will be using the same towel as Ovi to use as a makeshift cup holder for his face mask.

“We have a couple different types of towels in there,” Ovi added.

“I can put a towel under the creases and then use that.

So it’s just a little bit of a personal preference thing.

Ovechkins’ decision to have a paper roll in the middle of the field was not the first time the Capitals have faced an incident. “

If I’m going to have to use a towel, I’m just going to do it in the way that I normally do, which is to use the ones that I have.”

Ovechkins’ decision to have a paper roll in the middle of the field was not the first time the Capitals have faced an incident.

During the 2014 Stanley Cup finals against the Anaheim Ducks, Ovi was caught grabbing a piece of paper towel while attempting to wipe down his face.

O’Connor said the towel was used as a pillow.

“That was probably the worst incident we’ve ever had in terms of a towel being involved,” O’Brien said.

“[He’s] obviously going to use this as a personal towel, and we have no issue with that.”

The Penguins and Rangers are the only teams to have eliminated each other in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Capitals are 1-4 in their last 10 meetings, with Ovi scoring six goals in the last three.
