In Scary Fight, NHL Superstar Knocks Out Rookie

VIDEO: Alexander Ovechkin Lays Out Andrei Svechnikov in Fight

The chase for the Stanley Cup stokes the passion of every player in the National Hockey League.

The Carolina Hurricanes are playing it safe with Andrei Svechnikov after the 19-year-old rookie was injured in a fight with Alex Ovechkin on Monday night.

Ovechkin caught the fellow Russian with his right fist, sending the back of his head crashing hard into the ice.

In shocking scenes, Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin floored Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov with a punch.

Svechnikov ended up on the ice and struggled to get up before being helped off.

Dario Saric missed on the other end and Paul Millsap hit another 3-pointer with 1:30 left to pull Denver within two. The comeback gave the Nuggets a measure of momentum heading into their first playoff series since 2012-13.


The Hurricanes won Monday's game 5-0.

Ovechkin's Washington Capitals now lead their first round playoff series with the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0. "I don't know if there's words exchanged but, one guy's gloves come off way first".

"He asked me to fight and said, 'Let's go, '" Ovechkin recalled.

"So, it's a little but frustrating, because he got hurt".

The majority of these arrests were made for breaching Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 and obstructing a highway. At lunchtime on Tuesday police said there had been 122 arrests in connection with the demonstrations.


The first-round series between the Capitals and Hurricanes is, as they say, on.

Tempers flared enough for Ovechkin to indulge in just the fourth fight of his career, and first since almost a decade ago, according to HockeyFights.com.

Ovechkin addressed the fight after the game was over, saying "I hope [Svechnikov] is okay". He's never fought in his life, and I'm pretty sure Ovi knew that. You don't want to see a guy get hurt or something.

"So that stuff bothers me, because that's ..." That isn't a huge surprise as there aren't too many postseason series that don't ramp up in intensity as they move forward, but the ferocity of the physical play was a bit startling after relatively tame Games 1 and 2.

It was a standout performance when most expected him to wilt under the pressure of going head-to-head with Westbrook. Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings and the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
