Usually I do comrade of the night for the action of the evenings events. Seeing how Ovechkin pretty much scored an empty net goal it doesnt give him the nod nor does it go to Varlamov who played well but this site might as well be named after him(oh wait?).
Varlamov did have one incredible save found below. A desperation save with his stick on Sidney Crosby nonetheless this goal is easily the save of the playoffs. Be sure to watch it in HQ.
On Friday the NHL released the nomination for the Lady Byng Award. This years nominees are Zach Parise of New Jersey, Martin St. Louis of Tampa Bay, and Pavel Datsyuk (above with Byng and Selke awards) of Detroit. Datsyuk will be going for his fourth straight Byng having won it since 2005-06.
The trophy is awarded to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability. The trophy winner will be announced on June 18, 2009 at the NHL Awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
