The Kid vs. AO

from the AP via Slam,
They are the new faces of a sport whose stars were bogged down for a decade by talent-negating holding and hooking, of a league that endured a full-season shutdown partly to give them a proper showcase for their talents. When they meet Tuesday night for the first time in what could be the new NHL's version of Gretzky vs. Lemieux, Sidney Crosby of Pittsburgh and Alexander Ovechkin of Washington won't be thinking about ushering in a new era that emphasizes playmaking and goal-scoring, not trapping and goal-stopping.
