Two of the NHL’s premier players will write another chapter in their rivalry when Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals hit the ice against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 2 of the NHL playoffs. Washington vs Pittsburgh has been a prime-time matchup ever since Crosby and Ovechkin entered the league, and the matchup will be magnified more than ever with a trip to the Eastern Conference finals on the line.

With so much interest in the two superstars, online sportsbook Sportsbook has created a prop for which player will score the most points in the series. Sid the Kid opened as a -200 favorite, with Ovi coming back at +150.  

If you’re wondering why Crosby is the favorite, the reasons are obvious as he has more points in the playoffs so far, more points in the regular season, and more points in head-to-head matchups with Ovechkin.
