Ovechkin vs Gretzky Video Game Battle Raises $40K for Charity

Washington Capitals v New York Rangers

NHL 2K20.

The two hockey greats battled it out all for charity in what was called "The Great One vs The Great Eight Showcase" and it came down to a goal late to send it to OT.

But that celebration was short lived as Gretzky came back to win the first game.
