This series has the potential to be one of the best of the post season, and after two games both teams have stepped it up and the series now stands tied at one game a piece.

There has been physical play on both sides in this series and that continued on Saturday night, although much like in Game 1 there were some questionable hits that are likely to be reviewed by the league, there were some great hits as well.

One of the better hits of the evening came from Washington Capitals defenseman Jon Carlson, who leveled Penguins captain Sidney Crosby with a hard clean check to the shoulder that sent the Penguins captain flying, much to the approval of the Washington crowd.
