What a game that was game 2 of the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, especially Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. These two young players were battling goal for goal and both ended up with a Hat-Trick. Both Ovechkin and Crosby have been battling with each other since they came into the league, as they don't have a strong liking for one another. This however, is what makes sports fun to watch. To see players battling one another and trying to out do the other. Game 2 was an incredible game to watch and witnessing two hat-tricks made it even better.
The NHL is thriving right now with those two players in a seven-game series as well as the other series that are taking place. In the NBA the series haven't been too close, minus the Bulls-Celtics. In the NHL the series and each game individually are more intense. For example, game 7 of the Devils and Hurricanes when the Canes scored to goals in the final two minutes to take game 7 on the road. Conrats to the NHL for outdoing the other sports at this time with great games to watch. Let's hope that games continue to get better as they appear that they will.
