NHL stars Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby think the league should go directly to the playoffs once it resumes play.
The Pittsburgh Pens Crosby says he understands the need to try to play as many games as possible. But he says he wouldn’t mind beginning with the playoffs.
The Caps Ovechkin had the same idea. There is no timetable for when play will resume. It has not been determined whether the league will complete the regular season.
