Towards the end of the first period and with the Washington Capitals down 3-0 to the Montreal Canadiens, Comcast SportsNet panned to the owner’s box. Ted Leonsis was was sitting there with the greatest player of all-time, Wayne Gretzky. The Great One was chatting non-stop.
So my question to you guys is: What the heck are they talking about?
Here’s Peter’s guess.
Wayne is talking Ted's ear off. "And then I did ProStars and then I tried to disown my daughter and then my face got weird looking."

During the second intermission, Gretzky signed autographs and took photos with Caps fans.
He also somehow managed to find time to film an interview with DC101’s Elliot In The Morning.

Finally, Gretzky received a minute long standing ovation in the third period after being announced on the loud speaker by Wes Johnson. He waved graciously in acknowledgment.
