The Stephen effect

Bleacher Report:

I believe it’s something the Pens should consider -- especially since Ovechkin is making Fleury into a turnstile.

Why not stop a guy who has singlehandedly beat you? Why not force everyone else to beat you?

It reminds me of the “Stephen Curry Defense” we saw earlier in the year. Curry did not touch the ball -- he stood in the corner rendered useless.

Now, Davidson still won, due to the fact that Curry allowed his teammates to control the game against an undermaned defense. Ovechkin is too selfish for this. He will continue to attempt to be a game changer, averaging nearly seven shots per game.
