After becoming the greatest Russian born scorer in NHL history Tuesday, Alex Ovechkin sat down for an exclusive interview with NHL.com/ru, the NHL’s Russian site. The conversation touches on Ovechkin’s early influences, his rivalry with Sidney Crosby, and what it felt to finally win the Stanley Cup. Graham Dumas has your translation.
But my favorite part of the interview were the old family photos that Mikhail and Tatyana Ovechkin dug up to share.
Warning: they are adorable.
