For the last ten years, Max and Zach Wolpoff,The Crazy 8’s, have been a familiar site at Washington Capitals game, sitting on the glass right beside the Caps bench. Yesterday, we wrote about how the Caps/Devils game would be the Ovechkin superfans’ last together due to higher learning.
During warm-ups, Alex Ovechkin gave them a parting gift. In yet another gesture in a season full of them, Ovechkin gave the brothers two game-used sticks. It was a complete surprise to them.

Suffice to say, Max and Zach were excited.
“He skated by midway through warmups and tapped the glass right in front us,” Zach said. “Later, I saw him yelling at the bench and making a gesture in our direction. I thought nothing of it, then he skated over with two sticks.”
“It was totally unexpected and absolutely amazing.”
That’s our captain– making his biggest fans feel special and appreciated once again.
