Washington 4 - Rangers 0
Firts of all, YESSSSSSS! Back in business, baby.
Yes, I'm done with screaming now.
Simeon Varlamov had pretty impressive NHL record before the playoffs. After two 1st round game I'm seriously considering the option he's not even human. Rookie goalie, two NHL game played is thrown to ice in front of home crowd after a loss in the playoffs and he's able to play pretty much perfectly, allowing only one goal. Which by the way should be enough to win when you have players like Ovechkin, Semin, Green and Bäckström in your team... Then he gets to start in MSG, makes 33 saves and gets a shutout. In his 2nd playoff game. Normal people would be nervous dropping the puck and allowing few easy goals. Like Theodore. (Sorry, no hard feelings. You looks great in that leather jacket)
His stats shows he can't be normal immortal. That leaves two option; he's either Hockey God or robot. Now, since I'm pretty sure Bure is still alive, he can't be Hockey God. Which means he's the outcome of top secret Soviet Union hockey programm adopted by Russian hockey federation. As you can guess, the purpose of this programm was to great perfect team which would be above human weaknesses like emotions. Unlike most of Soviet Union machines, this actually worked creating lots of robot babies who were then raised by Red Army coaches. When Soviet Union crashed down like diving penguin, the hockey programm had the same destiny. The machine still worked but it took about a decade to recreate functioning robot hockey player raising system.
Varlamov wasn't the only Russian to shine though. Semin scored 2 goals and had an assist while Ovechkin assisted 2 goals.
Bruins kicked Habs and Chara had an assist
