Photo: Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom Are Still Bros

Despite the Russian National Team beating out Team Sweden for the Channel One Cup, Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom remain friends, as evidenced by this photo tweeted out by line-mate Leo Komarov. Sure, this embrace is not as epic as the bro hug the two shared when Backstrom first signed, but look at these guys. Tiiiiiiight for lyffffee.

Later, Komarov also tweeted out a photo of Ovi before arriving in Novosibirsk, where it’s -38 degrees today. That’s a lot of layers.

    Uh Oh. That first picture is going to reignite the ‘Is Ovi Fat’ debate all over again.

    Is Backstrom wearing a women’s hockey pelvic protector?

    If Ovi is that bundled up, it must be really frigid.
