Friday morning, Alex Ovechkin confirmed that he was suffering from a knee and hamstring injuries during the playoffs, the latter of which affected him the most.
A few hours later, we got a better idea of just how bad that hamstring injury was. Ovechkin’s wife Nastya shared a photo on Instagram of what appears to be Ovechkin’s injured leg.
The photo shows a grotesque looking bruise which stretches from the bottom of Ovechkin’s thigh to his knee.
“That’s hockey [for you],” Ovechkina said.
Thanks to @ljpg25 for the heads up.
