This is cool: Alex Ovechkin and Wayne Gretzky will go head-to-head in EA Sports’ NHL 20 to help raise money for coronavirus relief.
The best-of-three series between the two legends will be streamed on the Caps’ Twitch channel next Wednesday. https://t.co/76DWbXNwgs

“Obviously we’re a little better when we have our skates on and a hockey stick in our hands than we are when we have controllers, but it’s not about that,” Gretzky said. “It’s more about the ability to help people that are less fortunate and for fans to enjoy a night of us not looking very talented at what we’re doing. It’ll be a fun night for a good cause. We’re not looking to replace the NHL because we all want to see guys like Alex and Sidney [Crosby] and [Connor] McDavid back on the ice. That’s what really excites fans.”
This should be fun to watch.
