According to the 36-year-old Russian, he does not need surgery.

“I hit my shoulder on the board, but in the playoffs it doesn’t matter anymore. If you get hurt they give you a few shots or give you a magic pill,” said journalist Samantha Pell , citing Ovechkin.

Earlier in the Stanley Cup playoffs, “Washington” lost to “Florida” with a score of 2-4. Florida’s next opponent will be Tampa.
