Alex Ovechkin Knocks Out Andrei Svechnikov

KasenTaylor1

Ovechkin floored Carolina rookie Andrei Svechnikov with a right hook during the first period of Monday night's 5-0 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3 of their first-round series.

While there were heavy hits and post-whistle skirmishes from the outset, it was a fight between two players who don't drop the gloves often that set the tone for the game and likely the rest of the series. So it's a little bit frustrating because he got hurt.

Ovi hip checks a guy and goes after Dubinsky. He asked me to fight and said, 'Let's go.' I hope he's OK.

It was Ovechkin's first fight since December 12, 2010.

After the game, Ovechkin told reporters that he doesn't consider himself a "big fighter" and that he hopes Svechnikov is "OK".

Trump says Boeing should overhaul 737 Max planes
Federal regulators on Friday briefed pilots and USA airlines on progress in restoring Boeing Co.'s grounded 737 Max to flight. Boeing and the FAA said they are working on an upgrade of the 737 Max software to deal with that safety feature.

Ovechkin, for his part, says that Svechnikov challenged him. In any other sport, you can jaw all you want and nothing is going to happen. It was his first in the playoffs, while Svechnikov had not been in a fight all season. He's played 90 games. "I'll just leave it at that".

The two had been pushing and shoving before dropping the gloves during Game 3 of the first-round playoff match-up, which the defending champ Washington led 2-0 as the series shifted to Carolina.

Capitals coach Todd Reirden had a different take on the whole thing: "I see it as two willing combatants". He's never fought in his life, and I'm pretty sure Ovi knew that. 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.

"So that stuff bothers me, because that's ..." The game doesn't really matter when something like that happens; you just can't get it out of your head.
