The NHL Playoffs

If you're not watching the Capitals-Penguins NHL playoff series, you're missing out. The first two games remind me more of the legendary 1986 Edmonton-Calgary series than any series I've seen since then.

The flow of play has been phenomenal, with long stretches between whistles, and the pace has been incredibly high. Last night, both Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby had hat tricks in the Capitals' 4-3 win.

For me, nothing matches the sheer desperation of a team that's behind in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Every sport has desperation, but not like this.
