Q. But everybody wanted to fight you. ALEXANDER OVECHKIN: Well, my job I think is to score goals, not fight. I think Shaone Morrisonn, he fights, but I would not fight. (Laughing). Q. You would not fight? ALEXANDER OVECHKIN: Yeah, I can fight, I fight one time in Russia, and I think it's not a big deal, fight. It's a game and you play hard and if you have a chance to fight, why not. Q. When Mario was at his peak and Gretzky was also, it was good for the NHL to have two players like that, excellent players, do you think this is also, good for the League? SIDNEY CROSBY: Yeah, hopefully people will get excited. Like I said before, we played 20 games or 21 games, so to compare to Mario and Gretzky is a little early. I think that we have a lot to prove before we can put ourselves at that level. I can understand having two younger guys who are both playing each other for the first time, I can understand that maybe some people are excited. But to draw that comparison, I don't think that's fitting.
