Alex Ovechkin Downs 19-Year-Old Rookie in NHL Playoffs

Alex Ovechkin Downs 19-Year-Old Rookie in NHL Playoffs

Their first playoff win in almost 10 years came at a cost for the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night.

Fellow Russian Alex Ovechkin, whom Svechnikov grew up idolizing, fought the Hurricanes' 19-year-old forward in Game 3 of their Stanley Cup playoff series Monday night and dropped him to the ice, knocked out cold.

During the NHL Playoffs, in a hotly-contested game between Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals, tempers frayed.

The two then dropped gloves and Ovechkin hit the rookie with three hard rights before the teen fell to the ice and hit the back of his head hard. Brind'Amour told the outlet that Svechnikov has undergone concussion protocols, and that he seems to be doing a lot better. He received a five-minute major penalty.

Ovechkin's Washington Capitals now lead their first round playoff series with the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0. He asked me to fight and said, 'Let's go.' I hope he's OK. It's a little bit tough because I just heard Ovie talk about it.

The event is scheduled for May 7th which obviously is the first day of this year's I/O developer conference in Mountain View. The superheroes include Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Nebula, and Okoye that will be accessible through Playground.

His first National Hockey League fight was against future teammate Mike Richards on 9/26/2006 - during the preseason - and getting another a little more than two months later on December 2. "If that's the case, it's a little different".

Brind'Amour said he was "still sick to my stomach about it". If you watch the video, he slashes him twice - Ovi, whack, whack - then Svech gets him back.

Players sometimes get a little too bold and forget their place. Washington has a 2-1 series lead, with Game 4 on Thursday in Raleigh. "He's played 90 games, he never fought in his life, I'm pretty sure Ovie knew that".

"I just hated seeing that". He had one goal and two assists in the Capitals' first two games in these playoffs.
