Ovechkin confirms bromance with Crosby: 'Best friends'

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

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.
