I think that everyone would agree that game seven wasn't as exciting as the first six games, but I think the Penguins don't care.

This series had everything in it, Crosby and Ovechkin being the players they are, with Ovechkin with eight goals and six assists for 14 points and Crosby with eight goals and five assists for 13 points. Varlamov made an amazing save in game one on Crosby, but Fleury made two separate gloves saves on Ovechkin in game six in overtime and also in game seven.

Also I am a sucker for using history against teams. Like in the past two series that Washington and Pittsburgh have faced each other in, the Caps have takin a 2-0 series lead in both series.  But in both times the Pens won in seven games. Which was in this case and also this series.

Game seven was a good game for the Pens, and I think that the better team won the game.
