The league's two biggest stars traded hat tricks in Game 2 of their Eastern semifinal playoff series in Washington. Two of Ovechkin's tallies came in the final 7:07 of the third period, breaking a 2-2 tie. Crosby kept it close by batting a puck out of midair and past goalie Semyon Varlamov with 30.4 seconds left in the Capitals' 4-3 win that put the Penguins in a two-games-to-none hole. "Sick game," Ovechkin said. "Sick three goals by me and (Crosby)."
