Ovechkin Discusses A Few Topics

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

“I feel the same way [as he did a year ago],” Ovechkin said, “but it’s four years until Sochi. Let’s wait and let’s don’t think about it right now. You never know what’s going to happen. Right now, they say one thing. After four years, [maybe] they’re going to say different thing. Let’s just wait and see.”

Fair enough. Ovechkin has been around long enough that he’s learning to use all the key hockey clichés. The Caps, according to their captain, will be working harder this year, and trying to play better defence without undermining their go-for-broke offensive style, which is what turned Washington into that most unlikely of hockey towns.

“When you lose, you have to forget the bad things and remember the good things,” Ovechkin pronounced. “When you lose, it’s always bad, but that’s life. This year, I hope we’re going to play better playoff hockey.

“We have to realize it’s time to move forward.”
