NHL Odds: Old Foes Clash on Tuesday Night

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 11-Mar-2019

Another chapter will be added to a great rivalry that hockey fans have followed for the last 14 years. Crosby and Ovechkin will once again take the ice in what has become one of the greatest player-to-player comparisons in NHL history. Their respective teams are again in playoff contention and both clubs are gearing up for another run at Lord Stanley. Sid and Ovi will be key to their team's success down the stretch and will be the focus of this Tuesday's meetup as well.

With solid play over the past two weeks, Pittsburgh has managed to pull themselves into third place in the Metropolitan Division. Most recently, the Pens defeated the playoff-bound Boston Bruins 4-2 in what was a playoff-like game.

Washington has also played a strong game of late. They've won 9 of their last 10 games and own a four-point cushion over the New York Islanders for first in the Metro. Like in years past, Alex Ovechkin has been the straw that stirs the Capitals' drink. The 33-year-old hasn't slowed down a bit, and instead seems to be getting stronger. He's registered 46 goals and 31 assists in 46 games played and leads the NHL in goals scored. Tune in for the 7:00 PM ET puck drop.
