The best moment of the NHL Top 100 Ceremony didn’t actually happen on stage. It happened in the crowd.
During Jon Hamm’s opening segment, the former Mad Men actor flubbed Alex Ovechkin’s name and called him Sergei. Later in the show, Hamm went out into the crowd and apologized, attempting to play off the mistake.
That was okay, I guess. But then the camera panned to the right and Mikhail Ovechkin came into the frame. Everything immediately got better.

If you look at the right hand side of the video, you’ll notice Mikhail and his wife Tatyana – neither paying attention to Hamm. Mikhail first looks at the stage confused. He then holds up two phones and begins taking video.
I assume he’s taking video for someone else in Ovechkin’s party. He’s doing it either because someone had to depart or he had the best view of the stage in his aisle seat.
This was inarguably the best part of the ceremony. Never change, Mikhail.
