The Ovechkin Counter-Offensive
In the coming month, Penguins fans and Caps fans from around the world will form the most unholy alliance to date. And we will be launching the largest internet battle in the history of the NHL.
NHL—Those letters should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore, like the fact the Pens own the Caps in the postseason.
We will be united in our common interest of jobbing Montreal Canadien fans and getting Alex Ovechkin into the starting lineup for the All-Star Game. Perhaps it’s fate that bitter rivals have decided to join forces, not to fight tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but to cause humiliation to smug Canadien fans. We are fighting for our right to see the best three players in the world play on the same line, to enjoy it.
From SI.com’s Kostya Kennedy:
Have you caught the latest installment of the Sidney Crosby Show? The run of multipoint nights, the lifting of the injury-wracked Penguins, the on-ice act that also features the artistic stylings of sidekick Evgeni Malkin and his stick of fire? You don’t know what treats Sid the Kid will provide these days. Last week, he scored an empty net goal from his belly.
For all of Crosby’s statistical bounce—13 points in six games, 22 in his last 13—he is hardly to be evaluated by points alone. He may have risen to second in the NHL in scoring, but he is also second, to Magnificent Malkin, on his own team. What we are seeing now, as Crosby delights his homies in Pittsburgh, stuns the crowd in Hockeytown, incites the masses in New York City, is the Kid at 21. The man-boy is now officially a man, all grown up, not just by the measure of the nation’s bartenders, but in his dignity and his resolve.
