Bill Guerin reminds me of the Nina Simone song, "The Other Woman."

The media continues to build up the rivalry between Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby and they even throw in Alexander Semin and Evgeni Malkin.

But the secret to this series might be Guerin, "the other woman," if you will. He finds time to make the right pass. He is perfect where his rivals fail. He's a leader on and off the ice.

At the end of the day, in the song, the other woman goes home alone. But if the Caps don't do their job against him, they will be the ones going home alone.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
