An incredible privilege to be able to call the play-by-play of Alex Ovechkin playing this game. I will never take that for granted. There will never be another player like him. Ever. What a season he just finished.
"Of course, it's nice. Of course, the end of the season you pay attention to that. Of course, you don't want to lose it because you have a pretty good chance. I'm pretty sure right now for us it's most important thing is the playoffs."
Orpik on Ovechkin: "A lot of guys were passing up shots trying to get him the 50th. Try to be respectful at the same time against the opponent, but I think if they were in that situation, they'd be doing the same thing so I think they probably understand it."
For me, this series with Columbus will be some of the most fun I’ve ever had in a playoff series. First, my mom and dad, both Ohio State grads, live in Columbus. And that’s far from my only ties to central Ohio...
Is @DMaetzMedia who covers the Jackets on @FOXSportsOH and is a huge Twins fan, which I respect immensely. :) He works with @bdavidge99 who I literally have known since I was 14 years old, lived on the same street as him when my dad taught at @miamiuniversity
My counterpart @BobbyMacSports went through @TheAHL together, and a great dude who busted his hump to make it. @russmollohan has been a friend for years. @Aportzline is one of the best writers in the league and a good friend. Drop the puck!
