Mike Green And Alex Ovechkin Both Named First Team NHL All-Stars

Although Mike Green and Alex Ovechkin missed out on the coveted Norris Trophy and Hart Trophy, respectively, they did make history.

The Capitals stars are the first pair of teammates to be named to the NHL first all-star team in back-to-back years since Wayne Gretzky and Paul Coffey did it from 1984-1986, according to Nate Ewell.

It is also the fifth time Ovechkin has been named the team's left wing during his five years in the league.
