from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
“They’re both great teams and they’re there for a reason,” he said. “We’ll let them play it out and we’ll see who we’re going to play. For us, it doesn’t matter. I know if we play the Rangers it will be a big rivalry. Everybody will be excited in New York, that’s for sure. But Washington has got some great skill guys there and it’s always nice to play against the best. So, it will be an interesting match-up any way.”
But would facing Ovechkin, 26, add something else to the series for Kovalchuk?
“You don’t need anything else,” he said. “It will be the conference finals. I’m pretty sure everybody will be pumped up and ready to go. So, it doesn’t really matter who we’re going to play against, but for sure it would be something nice. We’re both Russians. We’re pretty much the same age and if they’re going to win it will be his first time on the conference finals too. So, I’m pretty sure it will be special for both of us.”
