Alex Ovechkin rides a tank in Belarus

Published Add your comment

The Washington Capitals may not be in the playoffs anymore but star forward, Alexander Ovechkin is still finding time to kick back and relax whilst on international duty with the Russia team.

Russia are currently in the middle of their IIHF World Championship campaign in Belarus where they have won all four games so far. However, 'The Big Red Machine' took some time off yesterday to hang with some other machines at a World War II museum near Mink.

Ovechkin's Capitals were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs earlier this year but Russia's key man has scored three goals already in the international tournament.

You can check out the video of the stars riding the tank above or here at SI.com.
