It's been more than a decade since a goalie was as perfect over Games 6 and 7 of a playoff series as Henrik Lundqvist was for the New York Rangers against Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.

(...)
 

The last NHL goalie to pull off the double shutouts in Games 6-7 was Detroit's Dominik Hasek in 2002 against Colorado, according to STATS LLC.

If anybody is curious about Ovechkin's take on it... it wasn't his fault!

 

“The refereeing... You understand it yourself. How can there be no penalties at all (on one team) during the playoffs?

“I am not saying there was a phone call from (the league), but someone just wanted Game 7. For the ratings. You know, the lockout, escrow, the League needs to make profit... I don't know whether the refs were predisposed against us or the League. But to not give obvious penalties (against the Capitals), while for us any little thing was immediately penalized...”

Over the course of this series and this season, I've lost a lot of respect for Ovechkin.  Someone needs to dramatically rip the C off of his sweater.

I think Ovie needs to be on a different team.  He had a strong showing in the second half of this season, he's an MVP candidate again, they should trade him while his value is high.  He's frustrated, the franchise is frustrated, the fan base is beyond frustrated.  If the Caps are going to be successful, they need to be different.  Every year its the same story, high finish in the reg season, gone in the first or second round (usually the first) and they can't blame it on Boudreau anymore.

Caps are playing in the weakest division and if they turn it on, they are by far the best team there but the team lacks identity, leadership (*lol* Ovechkin *lol*), dedication and especially a defensive system. Losing game 7 by a boatrace and then blaming the league is just pure Ovechkin, guy should just shutup and let his - sometimes incredible - play do the talk.

The Rangers showed the team they were supposed to be this year, and the Caps showed the team they've been the past 5 years minus their run to get to the playoffs this year.  Ovie was a pile of garbage in the playoffs.  I'm not a Crosby fan, but that's where his comparison is, and I'd take Crosby anyday even with the injuries.

Rangers played with heart. I'm glad to see they won, and nice to see there will be an original six matchup in the east as well
