If you didn't watch last night, you aren't a fan. As soon as Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother were over your ass should've been planted on Versus (or atdhe.net). If you did manage to miss it, you missed a shooooooooow. For every goal the Penguins, err, Crosby put up, Ovechkin answered. Both of the top players in the game posted hat tricks, and vaulted their way into the top 3 of playoff scoring. The difference between their games? I guess Dave Steckel?
Crosby and Ovechkin last night were magnificent, elevating their games to another atmosphere. It's truly special to watch these two when they're performing like we know they can. If I could give them both a nom, I would, but even I can't manage that (I could, but I'm not going to)
So with that, honorable mentions go to Sidney Crosby, Simeon Varlamov, and Marc Andre Fleury (let's be honest, he was left out to dry on all but Ovechkin's 3rd goal).
