Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin suffered a lower-body injury in a World Championship game against Germany. In the middle of the third period, Ovechkin, who was breaking out of Team Russia’s zone, collided knee-on-knee with Marcus Kink in what looked like a failed hip check. There was no penalty on the play.
After staying down for more than a minute, Ovi was helped off the ice to Russia’s locker room by his teammates without putting weight on his right leg.
