Plekanec Fires The First Shot

from TSN,

If the post-season odds were not already stacked against the Montreal Canadiens, Tomas Plekanec may have added some fuel to the fire on Tuesday by giving the Washington Capitals some bulletin board material.

In an interview with Montreal newspaper La Presse, Plekanec took a swipe at the Capitals’ goaltending.

“It’s not as though we are facing (Martin) Brodeur or (Ryan) Miller,” Plekanec told La Presse.  “They don’t have a dominant goaltender.  When you look at the goaltending matchup in this series it favours our team.  I just believe that our goaltending is more solid than theirs.”

“I’m not saying their goalies are bad. I’m just saying our goalies are better.”

Plus a little note on Ovechkin, who left practice early, via a Tarik El-Bashir tweet,

Speculation around KCI is that Alex Ovechkin isn’t 100-percent. But he will play Thursday.
