Thank the hockey gods I couldn't watch the Pens/Caps game 2 last night. Game 1 on NBC was nervewracking enough.
Greater thanks are due for the result, a 4-3 victory for the Red team that puts DC up 2-0 in the series. It unfolded like some divine dream for the National Hockey League, with all three of Pitts goals coming from the stick of golden Canadian boy Sidney Crosby and three of the Caps goals (including the game-winner) from the stick of Russian rock star Alex Ovechkin.
Crosby is great.
Ovechkin is greater.
Don't be a hating-ass hater. In regards to either player.
Sid the Kid was the only dude what showed up on his squad. For awhile it seemed like he could do it all on his own.
And then...Lucy pokechecked the puck away.
Snoopvechkin was waiting.
Of course, we can't forget the third elite-level player in this series, Evgeni Malkin.
