Alex Ovechkin #8 of the Washington Capitals celebrates after scoring a first period goal against the Carolina Hurricanes in Game One of the Eastern Conference First Round during the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Capital One Arena on April 11, 2019 in Washington, DC.

Following Carolina's 5-0 victory on home ice to get themselves back into the first round matchup, the health of their young teammate was top of mind for the Hurricanes. Svechnikov struggled to stand and was helped off the ice and taken to the dressing room.

The Hurricanes weren't happy with Ovechkin, as you can imagine, with head coach Rod Brind'Amour saying that the Capitals forward jumped Svechnikov.

As for Ovechkin, the 33-year-old Moscow native wound up in the sin-bin with a five-minute major penalty.

With the Hurricanes down 2-0 in the best-of-seven series - but up 1-0 in the first period of the game - Svechnikov and Ovechkin began to battle and trade shots while in the Capitals' defensive zone.

I hope Svechnikov is okay because he got knocked out in epic fashion, and I imagine most of the sports fans in the country will have seen it by noon today. Monday's bout was just the fourth fight of his career, and the first in eight years. But with an age and size advantage over Svechnikov, dropping the gloves Monday night invited an unfair fight. 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.

"We got maybe a little bit frustrated and too confident". So, if that's the case, it's a little different. "I'll just leave it at that".

"But if you watch the video, because I got to watch it, he slashes him twice, Ovie - whack, whack - and then Svech gives it back". Brind'Amour said he looks normal but assuming he's out for next game. "He's played 90 games, he never fought in his life, I'm pretty sure Ovie knew that". Brind'Amour said, his voice trailing off, "but it's done". So that stuff bothers me.
