Caps captain Alex Ovechkin addresses the media after Friday's practice at KCI. Ovi talks about his limited time in the third period:
Of course, I want to be out there. It’s his decision. I can appreciate guys for how hard they played and we win the game. That’s the most important thing. It doesn’t matter how many minutes I play. Of course, I want to be there, but it’s his decision.
Of course, I understand it and accept it. I want to be out there, but it’s his decision. We’re not going to talk about it, because it’s not the time for this. We won the game, and that’s the most important thing right now. It doesn’t matter if I play 10 seconds or five seconds; the important thing is the result.
