While the interview was filled mostly with anecdotes and stories about Crosby’s career with the Penguins, the conversation turned his years-long rivalry with Ovechkin’s and whether or not the two share a relationship when they are off the ice.
“Yeah, pretty much on the ice,” Crosby confirmed. “I mean we see each other at different events and stuff, you know awards and things like that. But yeah, it’s pretty much on the ice and it’s had its moments over the years. I think that’s to be expected. We’ve kind of been built up against each other from day one, but we’ve had some good moments, some bad ones, but that just comes with playing against him so much.”
