Ovechkin isn’t polling very well in Pennsylvania.

Alexander Ovechkin scored two third period goals to keep the Washington Capitals’ playoff hopes alive with a 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday.

Game 7 is tonight in Washington!

Meanwhile, Washington’s other playoff team, the Wizards, are paying the price for pissing off LeBron James.

Wilbon: Advantage, LeBron

The Washington Wizards were reminded, rather rudely Monday night, of the enormous difference between an all-star and a superstar.

The Wizards have three all-stars but put together they don’t come close to equaling the one transcendent iconic player Cleveland has in LeBron James. Yes, in NBA math three can be less than one.

The Wizards left Cleveland with barely a whimper on Monday night, looking like chumps, like a lottery team instead of one with playoff aspirations. Nothing that transpired in Cleveland’s humiliating 30-point Game 2 victory suggests that a change in venue, to Verizon Center for Thursday’s Game 3, will make an enormous difference in the outcome of this series.
