They were reporting on ESPN 1250 Pittsburgh this morning that Gonchar was playing with a torn MCL after the hit with Ovetchkin....... WOW.

Yep he was. Goes to show you how tough and committed to winning Serg is. I hope he doesn't suffer any long term consequences from this injury. :hope: I had remarked to XT just the other day that I knew something was seriously wrong with him, as he wasn't "gliding" like he normally does when he skates and brings the puck up on the PP. Damned Ovechkin. :mad:

No wonder I couldn't spot him at first at the parade - he was sitting on the bed of the truck which Geno and his parents were riding in (guess it was a little difficult for him to stand!)

Yep, just read it on FOXsports. Pretty impressive, he must of been in a ton of pain!

I like his one quote in the article, "That's why you're playing through everything, just to get it. It's not only me, everybody sacrificed somehow to get it."

I agree HTG, damn Ovechkin. If not suspended for the rest of that series, he should have been fined a butt load of money (didn't see anywhere if he was fined or not).

PS: Had to post something quick, saw my post number at triple 6 and I am a wee bit supersticious!
