NHL A More Entertaining Watch on Super Bowl Sunday Than NFL

While everyone was either going shopping for their Super Bowl party food or else shoveling snow if you live in the Mid-Atlantic region, you probably missed the more entertaining sporting even than the Saints vs Colts.

Yes the Super Bowl was a very good game and had more viewers than any other TV program in the history of the U.S, but the Pittsburgh Penguins vs Washington Capitals game outshined the Super Bowl.  You had the best individual rivalry in sports  going at it and both didn’t disappoint.  Not to mention a great comeback just made the game even better.

The Pens took 4-1 lead into the 3rd period with  2 goals from both Sidney Crosby and Jordan Staal.  Then the Caps took over scoring three goals in the final period including two goals from Alexander Ovechkin, his second goal of the period being his third of the game.  Which sent the game into Overtime.  Then in OT Ovechkin put a shot on net that hit the right post as Caps’ winger Mike Knuble put the rebound in for the game winning goal and made the Caps’ win streak 13 games.

If your not a big time hockey fan, just do yourself a favor and watch a Capitals/Penguins game sometime.  Everytime it’s entertaining as you are able to see the three best players on the ice at the same time.  You will be instantly captivated
