Alex Ovechkin injures Hurricanes’ Svechnikov in a rare fight

Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin injured Carolina Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov with a punch to the face during a fight in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series Monday night.

The internet, as always, acted quickly, updating Svechnikov's Wikipedia page to read: "He was killed in a fight by Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals on April 15, 2019", though it was quickly changed back to its original form.

"So, it's a little but frustrating, because he got hurt". And that's Ovi, not our guy.

"First of all I hope he's okay", Ovechkin said. "Yeah, I'm not a big fighter, and he's the same".

Ovechkin obviously rarely fights, with his last brawl coming in December of 2010.

Svechnikov had to be helped off the ice, and he will likely miss Game 4 in the midst of being in concussion protocol.

"First of all, I hope he's OK", Ovechkin said Monday night. In any other sport, you can jaw all you want and nothing is going to happen. That's the worst part of it that you see when guys get hurt. 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's his first fight. He's never fought in his life, and I'm pretty sure Ovi knew that. "I'll just leave it at that".

"So that stuff bothers me, because that's ..." Brown, who had 19 goals and 35 points in 70 games in the minors, has one goal and one assist in 28 National Hockey League games.

Capitals coach Todd Reirden had a different take on the whole thing: "I see it as two willing combatants". "I just feel so bad for [Svechnikov], and hopefully he gets better soon".
