The Washington Capitals just released a behind-the-scenes video from the NHL’s Top 100 Ceremony. The video follows Alex Ovechkin as he meets up with some of the greatest players of all-time like Wayne Gretzky, Sergei Fedorov, Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, and Joe Sakic.
But the best moment happens between Ovechkin, his father Mikhail, and Sidney Crosby.

“When are you going to get a group of guys like this together again, you know?” Crosby asks Ovechkin in awe.
Next the two rivals take a photo together, with Ovechkin’s father Mikhail figuratively being the meat of the superstar sandwich.
“Все!” Mikhail says. “Скажи, в Русской газете на первой странице!”
Both players laugh.
“What did he say?” Crosby asks.
“Russian newspapers. First page!” Ovechkin responds.
The full translation, according to RMNB’s Graham Dumas, is “That’s it! Tell [him] it’s going in the Russian papers on the front page!”
Later, Ray Bourque approaches the forever linked superstars.
“You guys are fun to watch,” Hall of Famer Ray Bourque says.
