Alex Ovechkin quotes
I think it's a good thing. You don't want to lose, but I'd take those four losses right now rather than in the playoffs. In the playoffs, if you lose you're done, your season is over. We still have 15 games to get ready for the big moments. You never know what's going to happen out there.
To be honest with you if you ask me like five or six years ago I'd probably say, Oh geez, it's terrible feeling. Of course, like I've said before, I want to score. I want to be part of the success. Sometimes the moment is unbelievable. Like, I just missed it. It's happened. You just have to fight through it.
It was close but not close enough. We tried to use our speed, they have a lot of talented guys. It's hard, everybody knew we could beat them. Everybody had that feeling in the locker room.
It's going to be like Russia when we play Olympic Games. Everybody going to be crazy. Atmosphere's going to be unbelievable.
It's Canada versus Russia, it's not two players. Two teams with a great history. It's going to be tough, it's going to be hard playing here in Canada but it is also going to be fun.
