Ovechkin, Green, Chimera quotes on Rangers, more

 

Ovie on his lines’ communication:

              “Everybody knows what they have to do out there…If I’m positioned in the middle. I know Backie's on the left. It’s communication of course…but it’s just about experience, we’ve played together. With Jojo (Johansson), he’ll just jump in and read what we’re doing.”

Ovie on the Rangers:

                “It’s a rivalry, but it doesn’t matter which team is there…practice is kind of boring these days, I’m pretty happy it’s over. It’s always that between the games, you enjoy one day but the second day, you want to go out and play again.”

Ovie on McDonagh-Girardi:

                 “I like the challenge, it’s big challenge for me.”

Jason Chimera on Ryan Callahan:

             “If you ask anyone in the league, you want him on your team.”

If Chimera expects a lot of chirping:

                   “I don’t know. Avery, he was the top yapper. I played against Asham for a long time, he can score goals too.”

Chimera on if officials will call the games as tight as the regular season:

                     “I hope it’s called a little less. I don’t want the refs to decide it…I’m a big fan of putting the whistles away, you’ve got to call some penalties though.”

Mike Green on the Rangers:

                    “Obviously we’re familiar with them, they’re a hard- working team that really elevates their game at this time of year.”
