The debate was over, it had been decided, Sidney Crosby #1, Alexander Ovechkin #2. On the heels of Crosby becoming a Canadian folk hero at the Olympics, Ovechkin went out in the first round against #8 Washington Capitals. The pecking order was clear but now that the Hal Gill led Canadiens have dispatched with Sid and the Penguins you can be sure Ovechkin backers will be back and speaking up.
Versus Canadiens in 2010 Playoffs
Ovechkin 5 goals, 5 assists, 10 points, +5
Crosby 1 goal, 4 assists, 5 points, -1
So Crosby haters, Ovechkin backers, what do you think now?
