  • VIDEO: Alexander Ovechkin Lays Out Andrei Svechnikov in Fight

What did you think of Ovechkin's crushing knockout of Andrei Svechnikov?

Alexander Ovechkin got in a fight with Andrei Svechnikov of the Carolina Hurricanes in their playoff game this evening, and let's just say that the results were not close.

At 10:59 into the opening frame, the pair of Russians got tangled up behind the play in the Capitals' end.

The fight occurred in the first period of Game 3 of the first round playoff matchup between the Capitals and the Hurricanes.


Ovechkin landed three consecutive daggers to Svechnikov's head as the latter swung to no avail. Each player was given a five-minute fighting major. Svechnikov remained down on the ice after the bout and then had to be helped off to the locker room.

Ovechkin, 33, has only fought three times in his National Hockey League career, with the last bout coming against the New York Rangers' Brandon Dubinski in 2010.

Carolina said Svechnikov would miss the rest of the game with an upper-body injury. Washington has a 2-0 series lead. He proved to be a valuable asset to his team during the regular season, scoring 20 goals and 37 points in 82 games. The pair met last spring ahead of the NHL's entry draft and Ovechkin wished the aspiring NHLer luck.
