from the Philadelphia Daily News,
“We’re excited to play the Capitals,” said winger Scottie Upshall, whose second-period goal was all the scoring the Flyers needed against the Pens on this afternoon. “It’s going to be a good test. They have a great team. We’re pumped to be playing one of the best players in the world right now.”
How hot is Ovechkin? This hot: His 65 goals not only led the league, but were the most ever by a left winger and 13 more than any other player this season. Eleven of those goals were game-winners, also tops in the league.
Asked for his thoughts on playing the Caps, Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said, “Well, obviously No. 8. That guy makes them go. They’ve probably been the hottest team in the league for a month-and-a-half. It won’t be easy.
“But if we play the way we did Friday [a 3-0 shutout of the always-troublesome New Jersey Devils] and [yesterday], for all 60 minutes, we’ll be OK.”
