Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

This Washington-Pittsburgh series is probably the most entertaining series I've ever seen. I'm mildly leaning towards Pittsburgh as the better team, but there is no quit or lack of talent in either of these teams. There was a lot made of the Ovechkin-Crosby matchup. I thought it was going to be way overhyped, but both of them have played spectacularly.

This game, in particular, has been among the best games I've ever seen. Pittsburgh started with the lead, and the lead has changed hands each time until the tying goal by the Penguins. There's two minutes left in the third, a slashing penalty was just called on Washington and it's going to end on a power play.

Wow. Just *wow*.

This is why I make damn sure to watch the NHL playoffs. You just can't beat this with a stick.

EDIT: And now it's in OT at 4 apiece. The pressure was intense on that last powerplay and Washington got a really good shorthanded chance at it. Varlamov's been awesome. Fleury almost always seems like he's in the wrong place, but somehow he's done what he needs to.

EDIT^2: It's all over -- Washington won on a redirected wrist shot which means that this series is going to a game 7. I'd like to see Pittsburgh advance, but I'm glad it's going to another game. 8)
