Colorado’s Jan Hejda tripped Alex Ovechkin near the end of the second period of the Sunday’s Avs-Caps game. Ovechkin went horizontal, his face smeared into the boards. He lied motionless for over a minute while every Caps fan did his or her best not to lose his or her mind.
Ovechkin eventually got up under his own power to the applause of fans in Denver. Upon reaching the bench, he began complaining about the lack of a penalty on the play– using some illustrative language. It became aparrent Ovi would be okay as he took his next shift– to a chorus of boos from the crowd in Denver. Just as it should be.
