Russian Machine's creator weighs in on AO's hit

You gotta love the Ovechkin family. Here is AO quoting his father in Russian Hockey digest:

Where did you watch the remainder of the game?
-In the stands with my father. He smiled and said: “Don’t worry, hockey – it’s a physical sport.”

Amen to that, Mikhail. If only we could get Alex's dad on the phone with Gary Bettman to tell the commish that.
