Ovi: "Yeah, I've missed hockey."
More from Katie Carrera, Capitals Insider, Sept. 18, 2010:
Alex Ovechkin, who appeared a little winded at the end of the session, spoke to the media after Group A's skate about the expectations facing the Capitals this season.
"You know, this is, I think, our problem. Everybody expects we're going to beat everybody and win. Let's just play one game and then another one. We'll see what's going to happen. ... We feel we have a pretty good team, and it doesn't matter what somebody says about us. We're ready for a fight, and we're ready for a battle."
The team's training camp t-shirt should give a pretty good idea of the Capitals' attitude this season. The back reads: "Stay angry. Believe in yourselves."
