The forward “Washington” Alexander Ovechkin said that he wants to score 50 goals in a season, but it takes into account the circumstances of a pandemic coronavirus.

— Of course, I would like again to score 50 goals. But now it is more important that everyone was safe. Now it is important to help each other, take care of your family, together we can overcome all this.

— I would prefer to play from the playoffs, sorry guys. We don’t want to play extra matches, — quotes the words of Ovechkin journalist Samantha Pell.
