I know a lot of people blamed Ovechkin for not carrying the Caps but he was all over the place that series and I thought he did everything humanly possible to help them win. Halak was just in that "zone" that a goalie can get into. This is the last time we saw Ovechkin play that way again. After 2010 he has never been the same player.


This is the first one I thought of as well. The Caps were the better team in that series by a wide margin, Halak just played out of his mind. It's a shame that franchise didn't have the patience to stay the course after '09-10 because all of the tools for a Cup winner were still in place.
