  4. Alex Ovechkin's No Good, Very Bad Half-Year

    Katie Baker

    You might not know it from the reliably shirtless exuberance of his Instagram feed, but Alex Ovechkin has been having what must be a pretty rough six or so months. In February, his Russian national team failed to even crack the medal round at the...

    Mike L. Goodman
