As everyone probably already knows, the Penguin/Capital game was a huge hype all around the league. But unfortunately, it turned out to be a huge disappointment. I, and I assume many others, was hoping for a game that would be decided in the last few minutes or even overtime.
The Penguins just dominated the Caps all over the ice and everyone knew the outcome by the end of the second. The Capitals reaction to the fourth goal was heart throbbing. You could tell it was over.
I have never seen the Penguins play with so much determination in these playoffs. There wasn’t anyone slacking. Well, Fleury did kind of give away a fluke goal to Ovechkin, BUT BESIDES THAT; it was a great effort put out by the Pens.
The whole game I was wondering “Where were the Caps everyone came to love throughout these playoffs?!” It was a sad day in D.C. for sure. You really got to feel for the fans there. But their day will come soon enough.
Though Game Seven may not have been the most exciting game, it was definitely an exciting series.
Simeon who? Unfortunately, this young Russian goaltenders miracle run came to a stop in Game Seven. Early on in this series, Varlamov was looking a little shaky and uneasy. It eventually came down to it and Bruce had to throw in Jose Theodore (Or as I like to call him “Threeormore”). Will the Caps see the same player who carried them through the first round of the playoffs next season? For their sake, let’s hope so!
Did the Crosby/Ovechkin rivalry live up to it’s hype? YES! Just look at the stats and you can tell, when these two players meet up, they play a much more intense game. I love watching these two when they play each other.
One thing that made me laugh out loud was in the handshake line when Ovechkin stopped Sergei Gonchar and explained to him what was going through his head when he landed that scary hit on him in Game Four. I don’t think Ovi would risk blowing out his knee to take out someone else’s.
The Penguins move on to take on Carolina in the Eastern Conference Finals and Detroit will take on Chicago in an old school rivalary in the Western Conference Finals.
Till next time,

It's the best time of year!
