Alex Ovechkin said that he felt 100 percent Tuesday after returning to the Washington lineup.
Ovechkin missed the previous eight games save for 39 seconds in one contest. “I feel great,” Ovechkin said. “Trainers all the staff do a great job. Was a battle through it. I tried to play in New York, but I didn’t feel comfortable and, obviously, we don’t want to make a risk and that was a smart move. We was talking with Lavy (head coach Peter Laviolette) and [head athletic trainer Jason Serbus], they wanted to be 100 percent. Right now, I am 100 percent. I don’t feel any soreness. I feel comfortable out there – that’s the most important thing. At this time of year, you have to be smart and think about future – not only regular season.” Ovie ended the season with 24 goals and 42 points in 45 games, not such a bad season for the 35-year-old.
