OV's a beast. Not good seeing a kid get knocked out but that's the chance you take when you drop the gloves.

How does Ovechkin not get a hearing there for punching a player on the way down and essentially driving his head into the ice?

Disagree, that's a reach. He didn't drive his head into the ice. The momentum of the kid going down and OV having a hold on his jersey caused that. OV did nothing wrong here. Unfortunate the kid got hurt.

I'm with Guilt Trip on this one. Looks to me like he simply fell on top of him. I'm guessing the commentator here has never been in a fight. He most certainly did not intentionally ram his head into the ice.

Btw, this is a great exhibit of how stupid it is to allow fighting in hockey.

It is time to get rid of it but in order to do that, the refs need to start calling every glove in the face and all that after whistle garbage.

Looked to me like Ovie let up on that last punch as the guy was going down, but in any case he certainly didn't ram the
guy's head into the ice.

Thank goodness Svechnikov had his helmet still on when he landed on the ice.  If he hadn't... (*shudders*)

I don't mean he literally drove his head into the ice. Bad wording on my part. I meant that Ovechkin has plenty of time to hold up on that last punch, the kid was dropping. Ovechkin's job in that case in my opinion is to hold onto him to try and prevent the head slam.

All that aside, it is pretty stupid that fighting is allowed. Joe Thornton gets suspended for a shoulder to the head, but 9 or 10 punches to the face is a 5 minute, then you go free again.

Caps won this one 6-0.  Ovie with a blaster in typical Ovie fashion.

Washington was in full gear from the get go.  Poor Carolina.

wow, what a d*** move by Ovechkin... hard deliberate slash with just over a minute to go. Knows he's gonna get a penalty and does a mock applause at the ref. Dumbass deserves to be suspended for that. And wouldn't that look good if they ended up losing game 7 because their captain can't control his temper.

3/4 wildcard teams have advanced.  If Carolina wins, that would make it 4/4.

 sometimes forget that Carolina is even in the playoffs, let alone still alive.

Really hoping Carolina pulls this off.
