Washington coach: Ovechkin played selflessly against Montreal
MOSCOW, 25 Nov – The head coach of the Washington National Hockey League (NHL) club Peter Laviolette called striker Alexander Ovechkin’s play in the match against Montreal, in which the Russian scored an assistant hat-trick, as “disinterested”.
Earlier, Washington beat Montreal 6: 3 at home. Ovechkin was named the third star of the meeting.
“Really good play on his part. Selfless play, right play. That doesn’t mean he couldn’t score tonight. But I always think you have to consider where to make the right decision,” said Laviolette, quoted by The Washington Post.
