Capital Collapse: Montreal Overcomes 3-1 Series Deficit To Win
Rewind to last season's Final. Detroit concentrated their defensive effort on Crosby. It worked on Crosby's line. Problem was, Malkin and Talbot took advantage and became heroic figures. Where were Ovechkin's Malkin and Talbot? No where to be found.
Mike Green? Interchange his name with Semin and you have his performance summed up as well.
What can you blame on Ovechkin? Adding fuel to the flame. Yes. Halak was an alien being in net after the Habs went into the 1-3 hole.
Alex the Gr8 saw Halak's hand shake again after Game 7 when Ovechkin had to offer congratulations.
Montreal moves on. Their reward is to face the defending champions. Will Halak continue the show? Who knows. What we do know is that it is tee time for the Caps.
