It's Good to be Ovie!

Courtesy of the fun folks over at ESPN, here's a preview of their E:60 show airing next Tuesday which will spotlight the Great Eight:

Yep - it's pretty good to be Ovie! Let's hope Alex and friends light it up with a vengeance tomorrow in Game Two. Some odds and ends on tomorrow's contest: Jeff Schultz is "out with an injury" - hmmmm; Rangers' captain Chris Drury skated with the team today having been out with an undisclosed injury; and Gabby is keeping mum on who will get the job in goal tomorrow. HM thinks you gotta go with with Theo - he's made some major comebacks before with his former Montreal and Colorado clubs in the playoffs. And goodness knows, all the flak he's catching should at least fire him up if nothing else!

I love the comments on the various blog message boards insinuating that the Caps should have kept Christobal Huet. Two items of note to those naysayers:

1) Huet isnt' even starting in the playoffs for the Blackhawks, having lost out to the "old guy" Nikolai Khabibulin and 2) Huet didn't want to stay here.

So c'mon guys, get your game faces and focus on and plant your butts in front of 'King Henrik's' house tomorrow!
