And, since one of them was Zdeno Chara, NHL fans were treated to a memorable Instagram post.

Chara and the Boston Bruins squared off with (and eventually beat) the Toronto Maple Leafs on Hall of Fame Night. The 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame class -- which will be inducted Monday, was on hand to drop the ceremonial first puck, while a slew of other legends also were in the house.

One of them was Nicklas Lidstrom, perhaps one of the five best blueliners the game ever has seen. Lidstrom also is one of Chara's idols, and the two shared a few words outside the Bruins locker room.

Here's Chara's post about the encounter:

Classy, as always.

The Bruins will return to the ice Saturday night when they visit the Washington Capitals.

Krejci's OT goal lifts Bruins over Rangers, 3-2 .
BOSTON (AP) — David Pastrnak believes good things come to those who wait. The Bruins have done plenty of waiting lately. And plenty of winning. Pastrnak scored his NHL-leading 24th goal and assisted on David Krejci’s goal 1:40 into overtime, and Boston came from two goals down to beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Friday. The Bruins rallied for their sixth straight win after finding themselves in the familiar situation of a late-game deficit. After Sean Kuraly made it 2-1 with 1:32 left in the second, Pastrnak tied it to force overtime on a one-timer from the left circle 4:27 into the third.
