Alex Ovechkin has a huge shot.
But, as we’ve learned this weekend, the Caps’ captain has an even bigger heart.
On Saturday morning, a key detail emerged: As it turns out, No. 8 purchased a sweater, coat and hat for the shirtless man, who didn’t recognize him but was nevertheless blown away by the gesture.
