ARLINGTON, Va. -- In Justin Williams' home office is a replica of the Conn Smythe Trophy. The most valuable player of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs will glance at it "every now and then."
"But that's past," he said this week. "That's looking-back stuff."
Williams, 34, has little interest in looking back at his past as a three-time Stanley Cup winner and even less in talking about himself as the missing piece: "Mr. Game 7," or, as Washington Capitals teammate Karl Alzner called him Sunday, "Mr. Perfect."
