That’s What He Said…

“I understand you can’t have two goals on one play, but why not? Why can’t you?”

–Toronto Maple Leafs’ coach Ron Wilson following a play in which the Penguins’ Sergei Gonchar scored an undetected goal and just seconds later tripped the Leafs’ Alexei Ponikarovsky, which resulted in refs awarding the Leafs with a penalty shot. However, following a video review, Gonchar was awarded the goal and the penalty shot that had been awarded was retracted, because two goals cannot be scored on the same play.

With Federer and Tiger slumping, the Alexander Ovechkin-Sydney Crosby rivalry is one of the best in sports and they are facing off in the second round of the NHL playoffs. Ovechkin’s Caps currently have a 1-0 lead in the series, which resumes tomorrow.

Crosby and Ovechkin honestly don’t like each other and they aren’t afraid to say it, which only makes their rivalry more intense.

Ovechkin on Crosby: “What I can say about him? He is a good player, but he talks too much.”

Crosby on Ovechkin’s Showmanship:”Like it or lump it, that’s what he does. Some people like it, some people don’t. Personally, I don’t like it.”

These two will get another chance to battle it out tomorrow in Game 2 of their series.

Alexander the Great

On this week’s E:60, they ran a story about Alexander Ovechkin, which you can see here.

I don’t know if it’s because I am a Sidney Crosby/Pittsburgh Penguins fan, but I found Alexander Ovechkin to be extremely annoying and immature in this video, particularly in the second half. Ovechkin looked like a spoiled brat who acts like a child and doesn’t care about what people think about it. I don’t think that many parents would allow their child to act the way he does after he scores a goal, so for a grown man to act that way is pathetic. How is is that athletes like Sergio Garcia are chastized for their comments and excitement, but Ovechkin is praised for acting like a complete idiot and speaking rudely about commentators, as well as, other athletes. Is this the guy that children should be looking up to?

What do you think?

Halfway through the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins looked to be out of the playoff hunt, but they have been unstoppable, as of late. The Penguins got another big win on Wednesday against New Jersey Devils. The 6-1 victory puts Pittsburgh in a a deadlock with Philadelphia for the 4th position in the Eastern Conference.

Here are highlights of the Penguins victory over New Jersey. It includes an interview with Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury.
