For the first time in NHL history, a number eight seed has defeated a number one seed. But that’s not all. For the first time in NHL history, a number eight seed has defeated a number one seed, while trailing three games to one in the series. Jaroslav Halak denied every shot that the Caps tried to take, and did a brilliant job at it. Halak was unstoppable. What makes the situation even worse, is that the Caps have Alex Ovechkin. Not only did Halak silence the Caps while they were in the lead, but he silenced many a time MVP, Alex Ovechkin. Halak played extremely well in the Olympics, and showed his consistency while ousting the Caps. This is the third season in a row where the Caps have lost on home ice in a game seven playoff round. There is always next year Caps and Ovechkin, keep your head high because you make millions of dollars. At least you’re not as bad as the Nationals.
