Today's hero - Capitals Simeon Varlamov

Who was the hero of the last game day? Don't go far away. It's Capitals Simeon Varlamov. The 20 years old Russian goaltender played fenomenal during his very first two Stanley Cup games. You don't trust me? How it's about Pierre LeBrun from ESPN?
"That's a good thing if you're the Caps. Rookie Varlamov looked cool as a cucumber as he shoved aside 33 shots for his first career playoff shutout. Boudreau raised eyebrows when he replaced veteran Jose Theodore before Game 2 with a 20-year-old netminder with 329 minutes of previous NHL experience. Varlamov has responded by stopping all but one of the 57 shots he has faced. Guess the Caps coach knew what he was doing."

  1. He is leading in GA %!

  2. He is the best!

  3. It's funny to pay such money to Theodore and to play Varlamov. But you just play your best goalie
