Video: Ovechkin jokes that he’s best friends with Crosby

You can always count on Alex Ovechkin providing a unique, entertaining answer even to the most basic of questions.

When Ovechkin was asked by a youth hockey player whether or not he and Sidney Crosby were friends, Ovechkin gave a response which was vintage Ovie and dripping in sarcasm.

You may have to watch an ad before the video plays.

The clip is great because Ovechkin is clearly joking around while maintaining a straight face, but what if he wasn’t? What if he’s telling the truth and Crosby actually has stayed at his house and they do go out? That’s a reality show we’d all pay to see.
