Game Thread - Pittsburgh Penguins vs Ottawa Senators

The second round of the playoffs begins tonight as Pittsburgh opens their second round sweep of Ottawa.

Two teams I was hoping would lose in the first round are now facing off in the second round, so who to cheer for? Well Jimmy Rixner made a pretty good case for us today, and Karlsson sucks.

This series is the best player in the world, Sidney Crosby, versus the pretend best player in the world in the mind of deluded Senators fans, Erik Karlsson.

With Tomas Vokoun starting in net instead of Marc-Andre Fleury, the goaltending advantage that Ottawa has isn't even that big, even if Craig Anderson stands on his head once again (he probably won't though).

Oh and did we mention that Kris Letang is better than Karlsson?
