The two NHL superstars, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin, have been rivals for decades. They are both generational talents, who are often compared against one another.

Ovechkin finally won his first Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals last summer, compared to Sidney Crosby who has won 3 Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Last week, Crosby was the first to reach the 1200 point milestone.

On Tuesday night, in a 5-3 Penguins win over the Capitals, Ovechkin tallied an assist to reach the 1200 point milestone. Crosby skated over to Ovechkin after the game. Everyone expected Crosby to exchange heated words with his rival. What happened next surprised us all. Watch it here:


Crosby showed why hockey players are the best athletes as he congratulated Ovechkin for his 1200th point. The two superstars left the ice, chatting like they were friends.
Despite both being rivals for many years, Crosby showed respect for Ovi during his special moment. What a classy move!
