Alex Ovechkin's wife shared a picture of his hamstring issue on social media on Saturday.
Looking at the picture, we can see why Ovechkin was lacking his usual burst. However, he didn't use it as an excuse when speaking to the media. "Of course you don't feel 100 percent—you don’t [have] strength in your leg—but you play through that, you know? Some players play with broken hand, broken leg, and you know, because it’s the playoffs," Ovechkin said. "You have to sacrifice your body to get success and get the result." The bruise covers a large portion of his leg and it was reported that he needed pain numbing injections to play through the injury. After another disappointing playoff campaign, it will be an interesting off-season in Washington. The picture can be seen by clicking on the link below. May 13 - 3:41 PM
