I just watched the entire Capitals-Penguins game. I cannot skate, and I grew up the son of a basketball coach. Still, I choose hockey over hoops (Lakers/Cavaliers) for two reasons: I figured the skate would be over before the basketball game and, unless it was Christmas Day revisited, I'd get to watch the 4th quarter of a competitive game. I was correct. The bigger reason to watch hockey is I'm doing that highlight on SportsCenter tonight with Matthew Barnaby, and I don't want to embarrass myself!
Note: The Capitals beat the Penguins 6-3. Alex Ovechkin had 2 goals and an assist for the Caps while Sidney Crosby had a goal for the Penguins..
