Alex Ovechkin delivers a bunch of hits on a nightly basis. He ranks in the NHL’s top five– along with Caps defenseman Brooks Orpik.
In the first period against the Flyers, Ovechkin lowered the boom on Nick Schultz. No big. We’ve seen him check a million guys before.
This time though, Ovi hit a defenseman so hard that the plastic camera covering affixed to the boards fell off.
Let’s zoom. Yeah. We definitely need to zoom here.
Ovechkin then peeled off of Schultz and skated down the ice, nearly scoring on an odd-man break.
He deserved his rest after that shift.
