Its too bad they lose the way they did, but L.A is primed for another cup run and I'm picking them to win it all, regardless of if they play Pittsburgh in the finals. They're a more physical team than Chicago.
St. Louis fans going crazy calling Dustin Brown dirty knowing they have Sobotka on their team as well.
Oh man, I just saw the clip of Ovechkin on that Rangers goal...so brutal
Can you imagine if that was Phaneuf? The Toronto media would have a field day with that one. They'd probably have enough material for a couple week's worth of Leafs news. I honestly don't get Ovechkin sometimes. The guy has scary talent and he probably doesn't need to put in a fraction of the effort that some guys do to be a difference maker on his team and yet he pulls stuff like that. It's inexcusable for a player to show no effort on a play. Ovechkin may not have been able to do anything on that play (though I definitely think he could have if he had bothered to skate like he cared), but at least show some hustle. I get the importance of team mentality but it would be really irritating to see your captain of all people show such little interest on a play which ends up in a goal against.
