The simmering four-way rivalry between Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin vs. Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby is the stuff great regular season games are made of, and hopefully tonight is no different. Heck, put'em in a steel cage and it would make a great Wrestlemania main event ... what with the bongo punches and low blows.
The Washington Capitals are 11 points ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference, but tonight's game feels like a must-win for both sides. Please join us for a live blogging of the game beginning at 7:15 p.m., as myself, Leahy and special guests take you through this highly anticipated game. You can watch the battle right here on Yahoo! Sports, too.
Thanks and, as always, bring the funny.
