The NHL could not have scripted it better. Alex Ovechkin facing off against Sidney Crosby in a winner take all showdown. It happens Wednesday night.
Of course, if the NHL knew exactly what they were doing, the game would be nationally televised and everyone would be excited.
Instead, a game that not only has the two biggest stars in the league and a win or go home background will be tough to find on TV.
So who wins? Ovechkin or Crosby? And how can the NHL market itself better?
