Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was among the crowd toughing it out at Nationals Park Saturday night.

Game 2 of the NLDS between the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants set a new record for longest postseason game.

At least he got to see some history?

#NLDS Game 2 (5 hours, 51 minutes and counting) is now the lengthiest game in #postseason history.

Ovechkin Instagrammed this video in the third inning of himself and the 44,035 in attendance enjoying the playoff atmosphere.

However as the game surpassed the five hour mark, Ovechkin appeared ready to head home:

For those wondering, the Capitals have their preseason finale at the Verizon Center in Washington at 3pm eastern time against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. I suppose Ovechkin has a valid excuse to sit this one out?
