The Caps played as a team and walked away the better team.

Two hard-fought points from a bitter rival.

The Capitals outright had their way with the Penguins at times. The game was a mirror image of past Capitals and Pens games. Instead of the Caps being bullied, it was the Pens. Instead of Olie Kozlig being pulled from the net, it was Fleury. Instead of the Pens getting some BS goal, it was Brooks Laich.

The game was full of moments for the Pens that should be part of a YouTube video with the Benny Hill theme playing in the background.

The best thing about being Sidney Crosby isn't embellishing after the play, it's showing everyone on national TV that I did.

If only we could find the video of Ovechkin putting his arm around Crosby, whispering something into his ear, and then Sid the Kid going nuts like Ovechkin was going to steal his Nintendo DS.

It was nice to see the Penguins show their dark side on national television, while Ovechkin and the Capitals stole the spotlight.

At the end of the game, Sidney Crosby skated off the ice with about the saddest look on his face I've ever seen.

  1. The sad attempt to cross check Ovechkin to the bench was kinda pathetic too
