Kukla's Korner Hockey


from Kristina Rutherford of Sportsnet,

Alex Ovechkin is talking, but he’s basically speechless, sitting here with an Eastern Conference champions t-shirt on his back and an Eastern Conference champions hat on his head, a gap-toothed smile plastered on his bearded face.

“Just ask Holts,” Ovechkin says, calling on the guy who just recorded a shutout in the biggest game of either of their lives to try to capture this moment, because he really can’t.

“This kind of emotion,” Ovechkin says, still trying, “it’s hard to explain what I’m feeling.”

Well, no kidding. Ovechkin, Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals have finally done it. They have earned a berth in the Stanley Cup Final, accomplished Wednesday on a quiet night in Tampa, a 4-0 resounding Game 7 victory that saw them lead for all but 62 seconds of a 60-minute Eastern Conference Final finale.
