FRIDAY UPDATE: Henrik in their heads -- click here to read it and see today's links at BB+.
The day started with Alexander Ovechkin saying how hard it was to "don’t kill him" when it comes to Sean Avery. The day ended with Ranger coach John Tortorella having to keep himself from killing Avery for his two horrendous penalties late in the third period. But the Rangers killed those penalties and hung on to take a 3-1 series lead over the Capitals with a 2-1 win thanks to the great Henrik Lundqvist.
The rest of our report on last night's game is at Blueshirt Bulletin+, with John Tortorella, Paul Mara, Fred Sjostrom, Chris Drury, and Brandon Dubinsky talking about how great Lundqvist is and Caps coach Bruce Boudreau with more to say about Sean Avery.
