Alex Ovechkin might be the leader of the Washington Capitals both as their captain and goal-scoring machine, but even a great front-man needs some backup.

It's the Capitals' turn to wish you and yours a Happy Holiday season and they did so by rocking out to Jingle Bells. Of course it's Ovechkin on the Bells.

There is so much to love in this video. Let's start with Ovi. I mean look at him, he's just so danged happy to be shaking those bells while sitting in his ugly Christmas sweater. Then there's Nicklas Backstrom whose brief tambourine scene is accompanied by an even wider smile than Ovechkin's. How about Joel Ward going to town on the inflateable saxophone after his opening-scene chuckle (c'mon Joel, keep it together!)? And of course we can't overlook Mike Green hammering away on the cowbell.

None of it, though, can be topped by Troy Brouwer jamming on the bass while wearing a onesie pajama tucked into Uggs. The levels of awesomeness can't be quantified.
