Ovechkin confirms bromance with Crosby: 'Best friends'
It's going to be awkward if the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals meet in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs. Why? Because two men will have to put aside a fierce friendship to battle each other.
After Sunday's All-Star tournament wrapped, Alex Ovechkin, who found himself hanging out with Sidney Crosby at Saturday's Skills Competition and playing with Crosby at 3-on-3, confirmed that the two foes now share a special bond.
The pair exchanged sticks after the All-Star Game, too, tweeted Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.
It's amazing how much can change in only 48 hours.
