    Crosby lifts Pens over Ovechkin’s Caps in shootout

    Crosby lifts Pens over Ovechkin’s Caps in shootout

    By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer 2 hours, 1 minute ago



    WASHINGTON (AP)—In the end, just as it should have, the game came down to Sidney Crosby vs. Alex Ovechkin, the NHL’s past two MVPs, each with the puck on his stick.
    This wasn’t about talking trash or swapping shoves. This was about who would come through in a shootout between Sid the Kid’s Pittsburgh Penguins and Alex the Great’s Washington Capitals in a late-season game played in a playoff-like atmosphere.

    Crosby came through this time. Ovechkin did not.
    Unlike their last meeting, Crosby avoided much in the way of face-to-face confrontations with rival Ovechkin on Sunday, instead producing a goal and assist in regulation, then the shootout’s only score to help Pittsburgh edge Washington 4-3—the Penguins’ sixth consecutive victory and the Capitals’ fourth straight loss.

    “Great ones seem to have the game on the line when it’s their turn,” Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said. “Tonight it was Sidney’s time to have the game on the line, and he’s a great one. And he made no mistake.”

    After Crosby lifted his shot over goalie Jose Theodore’s glove side, Marc-Andre Fleury thwarted Ovechkin with a kick save to end the shootout. Fleury earlier stopped shots by Alexander Semin and Viktor Kozlov, as Pittsburgh completed the first 5-0 road trip in franchise history.

    This was a great game. You can tell the chemistry between Crosby, Guerin, and Kunitz is really starting to kick in.

    It was a very good game. It's becoming a good rivalry, not as fun as the Flyers because Philly has true hockey fans in DC they are bandwagon fans. The Crosby-Ovechkin- Malkin hype is fun and good for the game. The Caps have a good team and are fun to watch and their coach is cool too. I'd like to see a playoff series with them, just like the old days the Caps will go up 3 games to 1 and the Pens will win the series!

    I'm just happy that the Pens are getting their act together at the right time of the year.

    couldn't watch it here in Columbus, so I had to keep updating the computer. Caught the important stuff-the final score! Hopefully they're hitting their stride now, and will keep it up throughout the playoff run!
