Boudreau also said Ovechkin was suffering from a nagging injury, which is why he didn't practice for the last month of the regular season. Everyone suspected that he was hurting a bit, but since he didn't miss any time or lose any effectiveness, it never became much of an issue. I asked Ovechkin if it was his groin, he said "no".
He also refused to say what exactly was bothering him.
*Ovechkin's injury, though, can't be too serious if he's considering playing in the World Championships.
Other injuries according to Boudreau:
Shaone Morrisonn played the past two weeks with broken jaw, which made it tough for him to eat.
Mike Green was hampered with hip pointer (suffered in Game 6) and a foot injury last game.
Boyd Gordon had a torn hamstring in the playoffs.
Torm harmstring? That's a serious injury, Knuble was out when he torn his harmstring.
Morrison with broken jaw? Wow, he had no face protection at all, he could've put a cage to protect the jaw. What a tough guy!
Green was hunted pretty bad, no surprise here....
