On Alex Ovechkin:
“What doesn’t impress you?” Drury asked. “He’s amazing. There aren’t enough words in English or Russian to describe him.”
Yes, Henrik Lundqvist heard what Ovechkin said about his pads being super big.
“There’s no way you can cheat these days because they measure it all the time,” Lundqvist said. ”…I guess I look big then, but I’ve used the same stuff almost all year.”
And the Rangers goalie doesn’t think Ovechkin was trying to needle him, and he wouldn’t even chalk it up to pre-game gamesmanship.
“I think it’s more that you get so many questions about so many things,” Lundqvist said. ”…some things will stand out a little bit more. I don’t think he tried to stir the pot.”
