The historic blizzard bearing down on Washington, D.C., is no match for Alex Ovechkin.

The Washington Capitals star told WUSA9 during an impromptu interview at a local gas station that he wasn't nervous about the storm because he's "from Russia," where they "always have that kind of stuff."

Ovechkin was gassing up when the station approached him, apparently getting some for his "snow car" (aka plow) that he planned to use to clear his and his neighbors' driveways.
