All I've got to say about that is that I said again and again and again that season that Osgood would be great when it matters most, and was he ever. I really feel like we got robbed of a Cup that year; we just had too much going against us with injuries to overcome some of the Penguins incredibly timely calls. I don't like to blame the refs, but with all we had going against us with injuries, those terrible calls ended up playing too big of a role.
I feel ya. I actually forgot to mention that Ozzie would've won the Conn Smythe that year despite an awful regular season. End stretch is a poor indicator. Again, good players tend to pick it up for the playoffs.
