Alex Ovechkin will appear on NBC’s “Today Show” Monday to discuss the Sochi Olympics.

Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will interview Ovechkin the morning after the Capitals play the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Ovechkin, who will make his third appearance in an Olympics, has been a fervent supporter of the Games in Russia and was the first Russian to carry the Olympic torch as it left Olympia, Greece, for Sochi.
