My second favorite team is the Caps, & I live in the Northern VA/ DC area. MY DH is a Caps fan, & I'm rooting for them.
Crosby's passion & drive to win is awesome. I think he could will his team to win all by himself. The Pens know how to win, & Pittsburgh beat them so many times in the playoffs that now they're in the Caps heads.
I'm a die-hard NJ Devils fan, & I always remind my DH we won the Cup three times, & we'll be back.
