CCS HoF: Class of 2015
That PK in OT by the Canes after the delay of game penalty was a clinic and a thing of beauty.I thought it was the 'cleanest' Game 7 I've ever seen. Hardly any extra-curriculars, no fighting. I remember an old Hawks-Wings series where Detroit had this guy named Justin Abdelkader and the only thing the guy did for an entire 7 game series was to try to incite a fight after every whistle. Ungodly stuff. You didn't have that with Caps-Canes.
I think the Caps kind of blew the game. They were caught in a change on Staal's tying goal, and up to that point they had been dominating the game. The Canes took over in OT, and I thought the Caps were fortunate the refs swallowed the whistles, because there were a few blatant penalties that weren't called. That said, the 2nd OT began differently, with Washington asserting itself again. The lack of any scoring chances on their power play probably did them in. I thought it was funny that Williams had the exact same shot in OT that Staal scored on, but Holtby made the save.
Teravainen looked good. He was fresh when everyone else was starting to look tired.
Very happy for the Canes. The legend of Brock McGinn begins.
