NHL PLAYOFFS

Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin (center) celebrated a hat trick with teammates Sergei Fedorov and Milan Jurcina on May 4 during Game 2 of Washington's second-round series against the Penguins in D.C. Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby had a hat trick of his own, but Ovechkin's three goals, added to one by center David Steckel, gave the Caps a 4-3 victory. Pittsburgh won the series in seven games and went on to claim the Stanley Cup.

"OVECHKIN IS DYNAMIC AND EXPLOSIVE. ADD THE INTENSITY OF A PLAYOFF GAME AND A HAT TRICK TO BOOT, AND THOSE INGREDIENTS COMBINE TO MAKE AN IMAGE REFLECTIVE OF HIS PASSION FOR THE GAME. HE'S FUN TO WATCH, AND A JOY AND CHALLENGE TO PHOTOGRAPH."
