\ UPDATE: Cristobal Huet said Olie Kolzig will start against Calgary tomorrow night and Boudreau confirmed it. Nicklas Backstrom talked about his gaffe at the end of the game Sunday.\

\ “The only thing I can say is that I feel sorry for my teammates,” Backstrom said. “I was surprised with myself. It is what happened, but life goes on. I don’t know it can happen, but it happened and we have a game tomorrow.\

\ “I thought I was further in the corner and I was going to put it behind the net. It happened, but I can’t doing anything about it.”\

\ Tomorrow night will be the debut of OvechKam, the spilt-screen broadcast of the game on CSN+ that will feature a camera focused solely on Alex Ovechkin. Owner Ted Leonsis said he doesn’t like it, but Ovechkin didn’t seem to mind.\

\ “It will be good,” Ovechkin said. “It will be fun to watch after the game [to see] what I do. … It will be new experience for me.”\

\ David Steckel, who had a soft cast on to support his broken right index finger, said he may be out longer than the 2-3 weeks the team had previously said.\

\ “I hope so,” Boudreau said when asked about getting Steckel back this season. “We don’t want to be done at the beginning of April, and we feel he will at the beginning of April he will be ready.”\

\ Boudreau also said Chris Clark was not on the ice because he was seeing a doctor but expects to see him back on the ice tomorrow.\
