Alex Ovechkin doesn't care for criticism from bald men

Tuesday February 17th, 2015

Ryan Getzlaf called out Alex Ovechkin for an "embarrassing" dive on Sunday, but Ovi isn't concerned about the criticism. 

“Maybe he’s just jealous. I have hair, he don’t have hair," Ovechkin said, according to the Washington Post. "We can start talking about it all day long. I think it was comment because he was disappointed they lost. Again, it is what it is."

Getzlaf is certainly quite bald for a 29-year-old, but he was able to laugh off Ovechkin's comments. 

It's a shame these two teams won't meet again this season.
