I know. You cant blame me after seeing the tirade you put on after Game 1. It was a little over the top and heat of the moment though.

He went on to acknowledge he made mistakes, but quickly noted that others did, too, and concluded: "One guy can't win the championship."

And, yet, Ovechkin made clear he thought one guy was responsible for the Rangers' series victory: goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who shut out Washington in Games 6 and 7.

Was it really as simple as that? Lundqvist stole the series?

"In my mind, yeah," Ovechkin answered. "In my mind, it was Lundqvist. They have great team, no doubt about it, but Lundqvist was unbelievable. Just unbelievable."

Phenomenally telling stat that makes this opinion seem quite invalid.

18 games In the PO where he faces 30 or MORE shots.
18 GP 1.41 GAA .941%.

Now what does this tell you about his abilities and his PO record? Here's the most important and most telling stat.

Again EIGHTEEN games played. 1.41 GAA and .941% while facing 30 or MORE SHOTS IN EVERY SINGLE ONE THOSE 18 GAMES and his record?

9-9 .

WHAt!? THE!? ****!?

What would you say about henrik and more importantly the team if after 18 GP in the regular season henrik faced 30+ shots per game, had those stats and the team was only 9-9!? We'd be trying to form lynch mobs!

The guy was the MVP of the SEL, won it's championship AND won Olympic GOLD. The guy is a SC winner on a team with any sort of competence in its compostion

I mean you sometimes have to have some semblance of an ability to look objectivity at this stuff when it's a TEAM game. Barry Sanders is one of the best RB of all time. Didn't win a Lombardi. Curtis Martin, Dan Marino, Patrick Ewing for BBall you can list guys who played perfectly well in the PO's, more then well enough to win and were all world players but /c it's a team game and there are so many other factors in it sometimes you just can't get that championship.

To blame Lundqvist and not appreciate how phenomenal he is b/c of a lack of a cup is downright insane to me

henrik seems to be the equivalent of felix hernandez in baseball. dominant in each of their respective positons and have even won the top awards for their position, felix the cy young in 2010 and henrik with the vezina last year. thing is both dont have much of an offense to back them up. oh and both of their nicknames are king lol

This thread is the ultimate jinx. After the title was changed he's now given up 8 in the last two games.

I like that its used as a confident rallying point, but logistically and factually, being down 0-2 is in fact being in trouble.

hes been poor, not beast like...But you know what, he does not deserve to be every game. We need to help him.

We blew some chances in game 1, but we have to step it up when we go home.

NYR were 16-6-2 at home, 10-12-2 on the road.

Boston were 16-5-3 at home, 12-9-3 on the road.

Can't really seem to bring this up enough. We're not a road team. This in a season with no western conference games.

Henrik needs to steal us one on the road. That's the only way we progress.

home teams should win every playoff game thats why its called home field advantage.. but lundy has let a few softies but my god the amount of PPs we've been given we should have dominated in the reg season, beat washington in 5-6games and be up in this series.. its a joke and travesty bc we should be in a lot better shape then down 0-2...i wish clowe was back.. no to be savior but he helped us out a lot on the pp..and hes a playoff performer..

Nothing about him fearing a serious shoulder injury. The hyperbole and exaggeration need to stop.
