One of the many story lines coming out of Sunday’s victory over the Penguins was the fiery rivalry between Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby. For the first time the rivalry between the two became physical. Along with their rivalry Bruce Boudreau also discussed the Caps’s rivalries with the two Pennsylvania teams.
This is what Ovechkin had to say about Crosby after the 5-2 victory:
Alex Ovechkin: “He’s a good player[Crosby] but he talks too much. I play hard, if he wants to do something like hit me again, he can try to hit me and then not talk to you guys about who plays dirty.”
Comcast’s Lisa Hillary: “So that’s what he’s saying — you’re taking cheap shots?”
Alex: “No, it was not a cheap shot, it was a game moment in a normal game. If he doesn’t like it it’s his problem.”
