Johnson and Westgarth on the Capitals and 24/7

Earlier this morning we heard from Kings captain Dustin Brown about the excitement of playing Eastern Conference teams.

Kevin Westgarth and Jack Johnson continue those thoughts below and talk about the recent 24/7 series on HBO…

[note: Jack Johnson comments after the jump]

MM: Did you watch any of the HBO series on the Capitals-Penguins?

KW: I thought that was great. I think hockey players come off as a bit of potty mouths, but definitely some down to earth, tough kind of guys. I thought it was cool. They (Washington) are another team that’s finding their groove again. Obviously, at that time (of the taping) they we struggling pretty good. They’ve come through it, as I believe we have – touch wood (he knocked on his stall). I think the game will be another great test. They’re an incredibly dynamic team. They can do nothing for 45, 55 minutes and all the sudden they’re all over you for the rest and sniping goals. It’s always a danger and it’s always something to look out for.

JJ: A little bit of it, not much. We were laughing at the clip with Bruce Boudreau with sauce on his face. We just watched it for entertainment purposes. I thought it was a great show and I hope the league does more of that.

MM: After Washington it’s off to Philadelphia for back-to-back games…

JJ: I think it will be fun. They’re two great teams. Washington is kinda having an up and down year. You have to expect their best game though. I’m sure they’re trying to find their best game and Philly is obviously playing great. So, I think it will be two fun games. It’s two buildings we don’t normally get to play in, which is exciting too.

Scoring some goals and winning some games would be even more exciting.
