Does The Great 8 have A Great Hate for his No. 1 rival, Sidney Crosby? Upon further review, "hate" might be too strong a word to describe Alex Ovechkin's feelings in this case.

One thing the Capitals have going for them (along with having possibly the deepest team in the playoffs) is a sense of destiny about getting Ovechkin the Cup. The Pens were driven last year by a sense of destiny about Crosby, and so were the Steelers during Bettis' final season. No one should underestimate what that means. The only thing that can derail the Geico caveman's Stanley Cup dreams at this point, IMO, is the Caps' goaltending, and/or possibly running into the proverbial "hot goaltender" on another team.

Theodore is not the answer in goal, but he's earning the bigger paycheck so he's been named the starter. He'll be on a very short leash.
