Or, as Alex Ovechkin said, "It was kind of a lucky goal, but it's a goal."
"You can see first shift [of overtime], Stecks miss empty net and I say, 'Jesus, where is our luck?' " Alex Ovechkin added. "Puck bouncing, and next shift they get power play and score goal. It's not about when you score the last five minutes of the game, it's all about when you play hard, how we want to play and how we can play. I think today we played good, but it's not good enough, so next game is gonna be different. There was in that situation when they [were losing] 2-0, and they come back and they winning right now. But it's not over yet. If somebody thinks it's over, it's not over."
(Ovechkin was gangsta with his quotes all night. "We have opportunity to win the game and we lost and we disappointed," he opened with, "but we're gonna come back here again Game 7. That's our goal."
"If we gonna play same way how we play first two periods we're gonna win this series," he added later.)
