    Washington Capitals striker Alexander Ovechkin fixed his helmet with a blow torch during a match of the regular championship of the National Hockey League (NHL), surprising netizens. The video appeared on the American club's Twitter.

    During a meeting with the Los Angeles Kings (3: 1), hockey player Ovechkin had a problem with his kit, and he managed to solve it all on his own - by grabbing hold of a nearby blow torch.

    Later Ovechkin explained to journalist Tarik El-Bashir why he used the blow torch during the NHL match.

    ​El-Bashir said that the hockey player could not get rid of the sticker on the helmet and "it drove him crazy."
