Heck of a game!

The Caps played host to the Pens.  It was on NBC.  It was a heck of a game.

Ovechkin netted his 43rd goal of the season.  This is turning into quite a rivalry.  There were quite a few times when fisticuffs almost broke out. 

After a little push-and-shove, Sidney Crosby was still running his mouth, even as his helmet came off and a linesman tried to push him back toward the bench.

Alex Ovechkin responded with a dismissive, “bye-bye” wave of the left hand, practically taunting the Pittsburgh Penguins star.

That’s exactly what the NHL needs a superstar rivalry.  Bird vs. Magic propelled that league Stank-0 doesn’t talk about and Ovechkin vs Crosby is poised to propel the NHL.  

The Caps have the pieces with AO, Fedorov (who set up AO with his goal), and Semin.  

Stank-0 watched the game, including AO’s goal.  It was a glorious give-and-go.
