I guess you are not safe on the road—especially in the playoffs.

Alex Ovechkin's life was threatened on a Pittsburgh message board by a crazed Penguins fan.

Oh, there's one thing—the threat came from someone who can't even buy a beer at a Penguins game. Better yet, he can't even vote!

Apparently, a 17-year-old male from Pittsburgh said, "I'm killing Ovechkin. I'll go to jail. I don't care anymore."

What an idiot!

Ovie has five goals in three games this series. I would be frustrated too if I were a Pens fan—but come on, people!

Go get those Penguins tomorrow night at Mellon. Let's go up 3-1 and wrap up the series this weekend.

LETS GO CAPS!
