Ovechkin stands by guarantee, doesn’t ‘care what everybody thinks’


Alex Ovechkin doesn’t care if you think it was a bad idea for him to guarantee a win over the New York Rangers.

He doesn’t care if you think it was a good idea, either.

Because unless you’re on his team, he doesn’t care what you think about, well, anything.

“Like I said, we’re going to New York and finish out the series,” Ovechkin said, per CSN Washington.

“I don’t care what everybody thinks, to be honest with you. I care about what we think here in the group and as a team. You guys can think whatever you want.”

He added, “Right now, it’s not about one person. It’s all about the group of guys that are going to be out there. Everybody can make a difference. … It’s good for us because this is the time.”

We think he’s right about this being “the time” for the Caps.

Not that he cares that we think that.
