I dunno about the throwing of the game. The fact that they sat Crosby gives reason to your theory, but it looked like they were having trouble getting the offense going. And I never like the idea of having to play Ottawa. That team can't be as bad as they've played recently. Remember the beginning of the season when people were comparing them to the Canadien teams of the past?
Good news for the Pens is that Alfredsson and Fisher are out.
The Flyers are a better team than the Capitals I think. In the playoffs a team is less able to depend solely on one player. I don't think Ovechkin will be able to get the Caps through to the next round. I hope they physically beat up on the Flyers though.
