Monday night after winning Game Six in overtime 2-1, the Washington Capitals shook hands with the Pittsburgh Penguins and participated in the greatest tradition in sports.
Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby, two hockey superstars forever linked, met in the handshake line for the fourth time after the conclusion of an NHL playoffs series. The Game Six win marked the first time Ovechkin had beaten Crosby in the postseason. Ovi was previously 0 for 3, including second-round losses in consecutive seasons.
The two players shook hands at center ice and hugged each other. Crosby patted Ovechkin in the chest several times as to say well done.
During the series, Ovechkin tallied six points (3g, 3a), including the game-winning goal in Game Three and the series-clinching primary assist to Evgeny Kuznetsov. Crosby had eight points including three goals and five assists.
