March 20 morning skate quotes: Darryl Sutter

On whether Dustin Brown is a game-time decision:
Yeah.

On how to limit Alex Ovechkin:
Well, most of it’s power play production. Limit power plays. [Reporter: So is it limiting how he’s distributed the puck?] He gets it on his stick and shoots it. He’s the best player in the game at it, and if it’s on his stick, he has a chance at scoring.

On whether the recent shots-per-game rate is an indication that he’s happy with the team’s possession:
Our possession is the best in the league…so I mean, it would be hard not to like it. At the end of the day, it’s time spent in the offensive zone with the puck, and that’s what we do. Finish the job.

On the Washington Capitals:
The Capitals have the biggest wingers in the league. Eight biggest wingers right now. So we’ve got some heavy lifting to do out there.
