Alex Ovechkin And Bruce Boudreau Comment On The Ovechkin Hit

After the Capitals/Blackhawks game, Alex Ovechkin and Capitals head coach Bruce Boudreau shared their comments on the hit.

Here's Ovechkin:

“I didn’t hit him hard,” Ovechkin said of Campbell, who did not return to the game. “He fell bad. But you can see, every shift this happens — little pushes, little battles.”

Here's Boudreau:

“I didn’t think it was a bad, bad check worth a five and a game [misconduct],” he said. “A two at the most, but I don’t make the calls.”

These comments aren’t shocking given the circumstances but given the players involved, the league has an interesting problem for themselves.
