It's not for me. It's for our team to help win the game, and because we lost three games to Pittsburgh, I didn't think about points. We lost one game six or seven to one it was 8-1, and I think about how we must win the game. We win the game, and that is important for us right now.
I can't score every game. I can't do something special every game. But my specialty is to score goals.
I don't look at history. I enjoy my hockey career here in Washington. ... I'm glad I score lots of goals, and I'm glad some goals are winning goals.
I hope next season will be better. I think next season we'll go to the playoffs, for sure.
I didn't score for four, five games and everybody is talking about it. Coach (Glen Hanlon) came to me after the second period and said, 'Don't think about it, just go out and enjoy your time.
I have a couple moments in the third period where I have a chance to score goals, but I didn't score. We have six more games, we must forget this game.
We finally beat this team, and I'm happy. He's a good player, but we don't think about each other. We play for a team and try to help the team to win.
We lost in the second period. We play very well in first period but we can't score. First period, we have great chances to score but guys don't score. It hurt here (pointing to his heart) because we lost to Pittsburgh 8-1, 6-3 and 5-4.
