Alexander Ovechkin was helped off the ice after his own hit on Tim Gleason.
Erik El-Bashir of the Washington Post is reporting that Ovechkin was walking after the game.

I did, however, get to observe him walking. He had a slight limp, but he did not appear to be wearing a brace and was not using crutches.
Here is the video of the hit:
