Ovechkin and the Capitals get Halaked

I think we can put the Carey Price argument to bed it's no mystery who the staring goalie in Montreal is and Redwing77 pretty much covered it in the last blog post. Oh darn the Capitals aren't unbeatable, I guess I am not very good at predictions.

The goaltender for the Montreal Canadians Jaroslav Halak was unbelievable in their first round series against the Washington Capitals. Against an onslaught of shots Halak was simply amazing and didn't give an inch. If you didn't watch any of the game and asked the question; how good was Halak? Jaroslav Halak stood on his head stopping 41 of 42 shots tonight and 131 of 134 shots in the last three games. The Canadians will now face Gary Bettman's favorite team the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Bruins will face the Broad Street Bullies from Philadelphia in their second round series. The Bruins went 2-1 against Philly in the regular season.

Montreal made history tonight by winning the series 4-3 and becoming the first eight seed to erase a 3-1 deficit against a No. 1 seed to win the series.
