Also from the same Insider post, this quote from Ovechkin, which goes in the growing file of hilarious things he says:
Sometimes I don't know where I go. So [Zubrus] will never know where I'm going. It will be a fun game if he plays against me because I know his moves, his strong side.Hear that, Zubie? Ovie knows what you'll do...but not what he'll do. If that doesn't scare the bejeezus out of you, I don't know what will.
