WUSA 9’s Ellison Barber was covering the blizzard this afternoon at a gas station. Looking for concerned citizens to interview, she approached a pair of people by a Mercedes-Benz SUV and asked if she could put them on camera. Lo and behold one of those people happened to be Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin.
You can’t make this stuff up.

The best part is he actually agreed to do the interview!
“We’re from Russia so we always have that kind of stuff,” Ovechkin said of the snow. According to WUSA9, The Great Eight was getting gas for his snowblower so he could help out his neighbors this weekend.
Ovi’s laugh is perfect when he realizes what’s going on.
