CSN Washington dot com. -- Steve line election times. You talk about always stealing games in the playoffs is -- a great example -- -- focused on this team PS. Yeah they came out real hard tonight net for Texas tired and you know we turned the puck over a few times and -- he's arrogant the stood tall and can -- a lot of rubber tonight. Which and then they get NBC Washington looks like. Single down the line of Broward Beagle and Hendrickson for their solid play can you talk about that line's play. Yeah they played hard you know they're you know they're hard to play against him we were -- often. You know they not just their line kill penalties and a big part of it -- -- you know it is you know the thing is their top line and it's it's big jump them. Normally from CSN Washington dot com. When you look at the last eight minutes of play I think they are stuck on 45 shots for the entire time. What do you see when you're looking out on the ice and you see so many guys going down the block shots like that you talked about a lot this season. Yeah you know it's the guys are committed you know it's that part hurts you -- -- -- it over on a mile an hour and you know they're going -- and shot the -- you know -- -- -- -- a lot of character in that room and now I think they care about winning and losing and I blocking shots you know wants to do get through all -- good strong -- You know and again in the games as would be a -- down there at the end of the game to block shots that's that much care to remember him. Stecker C -- -- 67 the fan you talk about Matt Cooper on the second line today I thought he did especially in the circle. Yeah it was solid you know it's one month is a big job for a -- means that one of the top lines and you know Lee was good defensively and because the chances and creates offense so he signed. Do rich Campbell from The Washington Times what is your impression of -- Simmons goal. Well you know it's he's got great skills it's usually -- there you know they were the puck around and enough to hoping for a second men with his shot. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If you Perez foxsports.com. Follow up on seven had you it -- coming and his coach have you seen changing some that are quality seen air any. It from him to the playoffs to now is the compete level has -- gone up and down and dollar's been pretty consistent. He's been good all year for you only scored big goals foresaw -- a stretch to get us in the playoffs and you know he's blocking shots like the rest of the guys -- -- you know going down on your side so you know he's you know he cares about winning and losing and he's in his battle and then and that's that's -- we need from -- Dale priming Kelley Washington examiner. Just more -- option. That that goal is is one of those that you know only a couple guys in this league to probably story was behind Chara. Kind of picked a spot I mean. Do you need that from Ovechkin -- here in the next three games that you -- you're the only need -- good you know it -- scores score enough. To -- the example of Alex but he can do -- -- you know it's a great skilled and you give him some room you can bury it and that's needed. They'll send Chamberlain as the nation DC. Not a -- security game six the schedule sort of -- you -- have a game Saturday afternoon and one likely Sunday afternoon. After two days two full days off this week how do you anticipate dealing with that do anything special trip planned are you not think. And a -- you know the guys you know they need to rest you know what the practices won't be long it's. Important to save their energy for the games. Steve Nichols districts -- -- dot com John Erskine down for two months he comes back an epic spot and I can you give your assessment of his play. I looked joining Bernard you know he's you know we had some big hits and he's really good defensively in. Front of his net. He's cleared a lot of pucks and for -- you know to for two months you looked like he played. Last game so it's a credit to him. Kellie -- CSN Washington dot com clearly can only with the wind at how much was Nicklaus Baxter missed missed tonight. Life you know you always miss a gimmick and -- in the lineup that you know other guys had to step up you know it's. It's team game and you know unfortunately it was out but you know he'd be the first one route. For -- to him. Katie Carrera Washington Post at how important was discipline in this team we talked so much about playing between the whistles the last two days and and today you know -- stupid penalties. -- I think on both sides you know it's you know they're they're gonna call it you know we've seen the night before that. In the Pittsburgh game and -- in this series is that there eminently they don't want to stuff after the whistle it's takes away from knocking it. Jack Anderson ex -- always. How how happy with the top of the penalty kill this point comfortable for twelve in the series and also the power play and a couple goals here and there I mean it that seemed to make a difference in the series by you you need your special teams and and you know pennant only get a sacrifice blocking shots in and the guys that are great over button. And your best particularly closure only him and he stood -- CSN Washington dot com.
