After a clumsy contact with the boards, Ovechkin appeared to sustain the injury.
The Washington Capitals, who have already won a playoff berth, can't afford to trade their all-time leading scorer.
Presumably, Ovechkin's absence from Sunday's game is due to precautions rather than just a catastrophic injury.
In the coming days, the Capitals should have a better picture of Ovechkin's injury.
