Ovechkin hopes Russian hockey team participates in Olympics

Alex Ovechkin hopes the Russian hockey team participates in the 2018 Winter Olympics even though it would have to wear neutral uniforms. After the International Olympic Committee banned Russian athletes from playing under their flag, Ovechkin said he supports the team's decision and is ''pretty sure they're going.'' At the Washington Capitals' morning skate Wednesday, Ovechkin and fellow Russian Evgeny Kuznetsov say they will cheer for the Russian athletes who choose to go to South Korea. Russian President Vladimir Putin says his government will allow Russians to compete as neutral athletes.
