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.
