No sight this spring is more pathetic than NHL writers trying to promote the PIT-WAS series by quoting inflammatory Crosby-Ovechkin exchanges such as the following:
Crosby (on goal celebrations): "'Like it or lump it, that's what he does. Some people like it, some people don't. Personally, I don't like it."
Ovechkin (in reply): "''He is a good player, but he talks too much."
Wow, them sure is fightin' words. Did we forget to mention that they're playing a game where whacking somebody with a thick wooden stick gets you a two-minute penalty? (Assuming of course that you hit them hard enough to break the stick.)
