Ovie Stomps His Feet

The Rangers moved themselves on - while depriving us of an exciting game 7 - by blowing out the Caps 5-0 last night. Henrik Lundqvist secured a second shutout all while looking like this, so I think it’s safe to say that life does not suck for him. Alex Ovechkin offered up some Oliver Stone-caliber conspiracy theory as a reason for the Caps' loss. We would argue that their best player being without a point in the last five games could actually be the reason, but we’re pretty sure he’d say, “Sure, that’s what they want you to think.”

 

Bruins Perform a Miracle

In what was essentially the complete opposite of the Rangers-Caps game 7, the Bruins found a way to win after being down 4-1 in the final third. It’s not completely clear who is to blame in the Leafs' total collapse, but it’s as if the entire team said, “Hey, we aren’t usually playing this time of year. Let’s all go play golf.” Sorry, Torontonians, but at least now things are back to normal for you.

 

Research? Who’s got the time?

 

Uhh, that was awkward.
