The Washington Capitals are going to continue to ramp up their intensity and Alex Ovechkin will keep firing, Alan May said on 106.7 The Fan Thursday.
"Then you look at Ovechkin, I think the best is yet to come for him this season," May said.
"I'm surprised that he's been as durable as he's been," May said of Ovechkin. "And I think as long as he continues to train the way he has the last few years, he's not putting as much stress on his body, but I think the biggest thing with him, regardless of injury, is how long he has this passion that is unparalleled by anyone in the league."
"The way he loves the game, how he exerts himself, wanting to still be the best player there is. And I think the number one thing with him is his passion and his drive, that's what separates him from everyone else," May said.
Thursday Ovechkin was voted the All-Star Game’s Metropolitan Division captain.
