Ovie vs Sid [NHL Live Thread]
The two have met 25 times in the five seasons they have played, and although the Penguins hold the win record overall, the Capitals have won the first two meetings this year. The Olympics interrupted the season and Crosby and the Canadians blew past Ovechkin and the Russians enroute to a Gold Medal. That may just be the shift the Penguins need to get past the Caps for the first time this year. Ovechkin has scored five times in the two matchups, while Crosby has been limited to just two goals.
The game is being broadcast on the NHL Network, but of course, isn't the only game on tonight. A couple of the other key matchups include the two New York teams, the Islanders and the Rangers, and the west coast matchup of the Anaheim Ducks and the Vancouver Canucks. The full schedule tonight is:
7:00 pm ET

7:30 pm ET
