WASHINGTON — Alex Ovechkin says his broken left foot is healing well after playing almost three full games on it last month.

The Washington Capitals’ captain, who won his third Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP, sustained a hairline fracture in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the New York Rangers. He did not miss any time, playing in Game 7 the next night and then at the world championship days later.

Ovechkin says he knew something was wrong but said during a conference call Sunday he did not have an MRI until after playing for Russia in Stockholm.

Ovechkin played all 48 regular-season and seven playoff games for Washington, even though general manager George McPhee says he was playing through other injuries. He did not elaborate but said they were not serious.
