Inside Alex Ovechkin's over-the-top 35th birthday party

Washington

It's only fitting that the greatest goal scorer of all time celebrates his 35th birthday in the most extravagant way possible right?

Alex Ovechkin turned 35 years old last week and might have had the greatest 35th party of all time. You can be the judge, as plenty of the moments were captured by attendees on Instagram.

The party was held at a large venue in Moscow, where plenty of Ovi's friends and family gathered dressed to the NINES to celebrate the Great 8. Included in the list of attendees were Capitals teammates Ilya Kovalchuk and Dmitry Orlov, as well as the Penguins' Evgeni Malkin. For those who couldn't attend like Nicklas Backstrom, John Carlson and Tom Wilson, they made sure to record a surprise message for the birthday boy.

Cheers to 35 years Ovi, looking forward to what 36 will bring...maybe a Cup?
