Whew, the win is the win, we'll take it. :-)

One of the Ovi's hits @ 00:20.
Another nice one was vs. Andrew Ladd who totally landed on the bench (man, he looks dead there :-).

Semin speaks with Malamud translating (After the first question he interrupts Slava: 'I got it')
But the hero or one of them (another was Tomas Fleischmann who got OT winner) was Alex Semin. 7 shots on goal and a hat-trick. Without this guy Caps won't go too far in playoffs, the team needs his performance like it was tonight. Semin, Backstrom and Green, young guys, without them no chance for Ovi to get SC.
I really like little Ovie, number 85. Last year Mathieu was sent to Hersey after he got a food poisoning, he just needs to avoid having sushi :-). How little is little Ovie? He is listed as 5'10", but Igor Larionov was 5'9". Give Mathieu a chance!
Lil' Ovie , Neuvy, Fleischmann speak with the media about the home game against the Thrashers.
