from Corey Masisak of the CSNWashington,
A group of media members were waiting for Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau outside the Washington dressing room for his post-game press conference. Majority owner Ted Leonsis and general manager George McPhee were about 20 feet away toward where the Capitals’ team bus awaited. Ovechkin and Kovalchuk were conversing in the hallway between the two locker rooms about 10 feet from where Boudreau would be speaking.
Both players appeared to be in good spirits, laughing and smiling with each other. It was a stark contrast to how somber Ovechkin was when he addressed reporters a few minutes earlier. Other players were leaving the dressing room for the bus having already showered and in their suits as Ovechkin—in a T-shirt and shorts—talked to Kovalchuk.
Alexander Semin came out of the room and turned right toward the bus when Ovechkin yelled for him. Semin gave him a disgruntled look, but capitulated and joined them in the discussion.
A minute or so later, Boudreau walked out to assume his place in front of the media. Already upset, he glanced to where Ovechkin, Semin and Kovalchuk were standing and he looked displeased.
