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.

So What Do You Think?

My first question would be, why would Tavares come to Detroit at this stage of his career?  He will get paid wherever he decides to go.

Can Danny DeKeyser Bulk Up?

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press answered a few questions today.

This one on does Danny DeKeyser know where the weight room is?

Yes. Danny DeKeyser’s issue is that it’s a daily challenge for him to consume enough calorie-dense foods to maintain his weight. Lisa McDowell, the Wings’ nutrionist, has had DeKeyser on as much as a 10,000-calorie a day diet. DeKeyser has more leeway than any of his teammates when it comes to having foods such as pizza and ice cream. In his own words, “I just try to pretty much eat whenever I can. I can pretty much eat whatever I want.”

DeKeyser can eat cheese every day, and thus is the envy of the media corps.
