Alex Ovechkin just gingerly made his way to the Caps bench here midway through the third period. He went to the ice to block a shot from the right point, and took it directly off his left foot. He stayed on the ice on one knee for part of the shift, and then went to the bench. He’s still there (he hasn’t gone to the dressing room), but he is in some pain.

It does look like he is going to try and play through it.
