Ilya Kovalchuk Postgame:
“Whatever you do you have to make sure you didn’t cost your team points in the standings. If you do something and take a risk you have to pay for it. You have to be responsible for it, and I am. I’ll watch the video and I’ll talk to our power play guys and we’ll see what we can do better. Every time it seems like I cost us– a turnover, the puck bounces over my stick or hits a skate. I have to make sure I put it in a safe place, in the corner or something.”
