DISCUSSING ONE OF THE MOST HYPED MATCHUPS IN YEARS

On Tuesday night Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin revived the version of NHL where Gretzky and Lemieux stand. These wunderkinds are enjoying one of the greatest shows in professional sports. The pair has joined in an enthusiastic race for the Calder Memorial Trophy that is annually awarded to the NHL rookie of the year. Crosby has an added advantage since he has captured the award for the October NHL Rookie of the Month. On the hand the Capitals' Alexander Ovechkin has emerged onto the NHL scene with 15 goals in 20 games. Crosby leads in overall scoring, but Ovechkin has more goals. Crosby has 10 goals and 15 assists in 21 games, while Ovechkin has 15 goals and six assists in 20 games. But the play of both the players is more than statistics. Both of them are outstanding skaters and are daring, with very hard shots. Meetings of Ovechkin and Crosby have an unusual air, rivaled only by those of Gretzky and Lemieux.
