Two of the NHL’s Greatest players will write another chapter in their rivalry when Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals hit on the ice against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round Two of the NHL playoffs.
Washington vs Pittsburgh was a prime-time matchup ever since Crosby and Ovechkin entered the league, and also the matchup will be magnified more than with a trip to the Eastern Conference finals on the line.
With so much interest in the two superstars, online sportsbook BetOnline has produced a brace for which player will score the maximum points in the collection. Sid the Kid opened with Ovi.
If you are wondering why Crosby is the preferred, the reasons are obvious as he has more points at the playoffs up to now, more points from the regular season, and more points at head-to-head matchups with Ovechkin.
Here’s a peek at the figures:Besides Crosby’s scoring edge, the Pens are 33-21 versus the Caps with Crosby and Ovechkin at the lineup and Canadian baseball fans will be quick to point out two Olympic gold medals for Crosby with Ovechkin making just a participation ribbon in the Olympics… Those exist, right?
