Ovechkin, the captain of the Washington Capitals, was the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy (MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs) as the Capitals won the franchise’s first Stanley Cup championship in 2018. Hopefully this attempt is better than the last time Ovechkin was given the opportunity to throw out a first pitch.
