Hart Memorial Trophy. In the end, it was Alex Ovechkin who took home the Hart and Sidney Crosby walked away with the Ted Lindsay Award (formerly the Lester B. Pearson Award). The Hart votes by the PHWA were close with Ovechkin edging Crosby by a mere 32 votes and it was the closest ballot since 2002 (something you could have expected in a shortened season). Both trophies honour excellence, but are voted on by two very different parties which make each one special in their own way.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been swept out of the Eastern Conference Finals by the Boston Bruins and many questions will surround the team this offseason as a result of their disappointing playoff finish. Will Dan Bylsma be back to coach the Penguins next season? Will Jarome Iginla return? What has happened to Marc-Andre Fleury and what do they do with him?

Recently nominated for the Mark Messier Leadership Award, Daniel Alfredsson has been a pretty solid leader in Ottawa for most of his career and is a pillar of the franchise. Ask Siri and she'll even say Alfie is God. But after last night's loss he much pretty much tossed up the white flag, booked his flight home to Sweden and surrendered to the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins.

What about the incident with Max Pacioretty?
“The incident? It wasn’t that much. He was choking me and I bit him. Don’t stick your hands where you shouldn’t. To be honest with you he was choking me pretty hard, to the point where I really couldn’t breathe. And I couldn’t pull his hand away at all. I tried to hit him with my other hand, but I couldn’t because he was choking me. There was nothing left to do but bite him.”

It's that fun time when NHL teams start to reveal what injuries their players had or suffered during the playoffs and we shake our heads in awe. We like to call this time of year the Playoffs Injury Parade as teams disclose injuries that were suspected about during series' or completely unknown about. These injuries are kept under a veil of secrecy during the playoffs as you can't give your opponent a sniff of weakness so it's always interesting when a team is eliminated and you get to see what players were playing through. There are only a few injuries that will keep a player from playing this time of year and if you don't have have some battlescars when you win than you're not doing it right.
