VoiceOfAmerica: How you've come up with the idea of this charity game and what this game means to you?
Ovechkin: Ilya Kovalchuk and I came up with this idea of playing a charity game to help kids who need help. This game is happening for the second year in a row and I believe the fundraising will help children and we hope we will continue this even with bigger scale.
VoiceOfAmerica: As far as charity fundraising events are concerned, can it be be compared to charity events in America, is this similar?
Ovechkin: It's different over there, they have a lot of experience and it is better organized, here we just starting it, we are getting into it and in the future it will be much bigger and better.
