Transcript of Alex Ovechkin’s meeting with the media:

Q: How are you feeling?


Ovechkin: “Good.”

Q: What do you sorta look for out of yourself? What lets you know that you’re OK?

Ovechkin: “I just skating over there, like see if it bothers me or not. It’s not bothering me. I think I’m ready to go.”

Q: Do you think you’ll play tomorrow?

Ovechkin: “I don’t know. It’s not my decision. Like I said, I’m ready to go but I was gonna work on it. I don’t know; we’ll see tomorrow.”

Q: Are you back to 100 percent or close to it?

Ovechkin: “Everybody wants to be 100 percent but right now it’s time to recover best from what happened to you. Again, I feel good.”

Q: Do you feel rested, fresh?

Ovechkin: “Well, I was rested. Again, it just happened…”

Q: Is it tough to sit and watch the team play?

Ovechkin: “Yeah, it’s very tough, but it is what it is. But again the most important games are forward, so I’m gonna be OK.”
