In case you were wondering, Versus, which was supposed to show the NHL Awards Show live, decided to put it on tape delay and show it at 11. At least that is what the crawl on the screen said.
The Lightning did not get any hardware, as it turned out. Vinny Lecavalier, up for the Pearson Award as the game's most outstanding player as voted by the players, lost out to Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby. Marty St. Louis finished second to Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk for the Lady Byng, awarded for sportsmanship by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.
Lecavalier, defenseman Dan Boyle and right wing Marty St. Louis were named to the second team.
In case you missed them, here were the awards:
Hart (MVP): Sidney Crosby
Vezina (goaltender): Martin Brodeur
Adams (coach): Alain Vigneault, Canucks
Selke (defensive forward): Rod Brind'Amour
Masterton (dedication to hockey): Phil Kessel
Calder (rookie): Evgeni Malkin
Norris (defenseman): Nicklas Lidstrom
First-team All-Stars: Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Dany Heatley, Lidstrom and Scott Niedermayer.
