Sid the Kid to the Great Eight: Crosby sets up Ovechkin


The typical discussion is usually Sidney Crosby versus Alex Ovechkin.

On Sunday, it was Sidney Crosby to Alex Ovechkin.

The two superstars, often in the middle of an intense debate about who is the best player in the game, will get back to their Pittsburgh Penguins-Washington Capitals rivalry in due time. But for one day, they suited up and played on the same line for the Metropolitan Division in Sunday’s All-Star Game in L.A.

Crosby set up Ovechkin — Sid the Kid to the Great Eight — with one second remaining in the second half of their game versus the Atlantic Division.

The Metropolitan’s victory now sets up a Sidney Crosby versus Connor McDavid match-up in the final, with $1 million in prize money on the line.
