Team puts hope in Russian hockey star 'Alexander the Great'
The U.S. is taking on Russia in men’s hockey, and superstar Alexander Ovechkin is carrying the pressures of a host nation hoping for gold.
Ovechkin is one of the biggest stars in both Russian and American hockey, since he plays for both the Russian National Ice Hockey Team and the Washington Capitals. He is so successful he has been given the nickname "Alexander the Great."
Ovechkin credits his parents, star athletes themselves, with mentoring him every step of the way.
