According to Luey, Ovechkin promised the 13-year-old cancer survivor that he would score a goal and the Capitals would win before the game. Ovechkin scored three goals instead, taking over the NHL lead in goals. An emotional Luey was captured by Sportsnet cameras hugging his parents in the stands.
After the game, Ovechkin did interviews with Luey by his side. Philipp Grubauer would later name Luey the team’s player of the game. Capitals players gave Luey a standing ovation.
