"We're playing Pittsburgh. Welcome to the circus."
The key to the series as in almost every NHL playoff series: Goaltending.
Rookie Simeon Varlamov, who went 4-2 with a 1.17 GAA and .952 save percentage, faces off against Marc-Andre Fleury (4-2, 2.39 GAA and .922 save percentage).
You can't have any more hype for this one then there will be. Heck, I wish it was Saturday already so I can make the trek up to Verizon Center to cheer on the Caps.
Every time Ovechkin and Malkin are on the ice, they will try to do out do each other. Semin and Crosby going head-to-head, is a match-up of great magnitude ever since the infamous, "What's so special about Crosby" bit from Semin.
This playoff series will be one of the most watched and memorable in recent memories. For our sake...GO CAPS!!! PENS SUCK!!
