Ottawa's Lasting 2012 Stanley Cup Playoff Legacy

And the “[insert opposing star player] sucks!” have reached round three. It all started with Ottawa’s serenade of Daniel Alfredsson at the 11:11 mark of each period at Scotiabank Place, a chant of respect for their long-time captain.

But in New York, they didn’t like that chant, and against the Senators in Round 1, they turned it into “Alfie sucks!” When they advanced to Round 2 against the Capitals, they turned it into “Ovi sucks!” at the 8:08 mark for Alex Ovechkin. Washington fans responded in kind with “Ovi!’ Ovi!” chants during games at Verizon Center.

The target of the Madison Square Garden faithful in the Conference Finals? Ilya Kovalchuk. Rangers fans are chanting “Kovy sucks!” at the 17:17 mark of each period, and we’d expect Devils fans to respond when this series shifts back across the river for Games 3, 4 and 6.
