Michal Neuvirth claims that he received an apology from the website that allegedly misquoted him about Alex Ovechkin, Braden Holtby and Dale Hunter.

“They told me they made their mistake and they called me and called my agent and apologized, so it’s good,” Neuvirth said.

Neuvirth told’s Chuck Gormley that he cannot recall what he actually said about his teammates and former coach.

“I don’t remember,” Neuvirth said. “I know I talked about the boys in a good way and how good they are in the locker room and we have a great team and a great group of guys and they changed it. Like I said, they made their mistake, it’s over now and I don’t even think about it anymore.”

The website, Russian Machine Never Breaks, that translated the original report stands by its translation.

    RMNB didn’t originally translate the article. Some other website did, they just reposted it and added their thoughts. They then posted another article explaining that things may have been lost in translation, but they still stand by their thoughts.
