OTTAWA - Erik Karlsson is pretty quick moving the puck.

On Sunday, he was just as slick at dismissing any talk about the Ottawa Senators second-round matchup against Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

They may be getting ready for a playoff series, but it would appear the trash talk is being put aside.

As soon as the matchup was settled late Saturday night when the Penguins knocked off the Islanders in overtime, Karlsson sent out a tweet to try to calm the waters and make sure the focus is on what happens on the ice.

"Wonder how many (questions) Im gonna get now about my injury. Lol, wrote Karlsson, who hashtagged the tweet with #whocares #oldnews #playtowin.
