Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has gone 30 minutes without a goal, so obviously he’s cranky. In the second, period, Ovi took that crankiness out on Philadelphia forward Sean Couturier.
Ovechkin smeared Couturier into the boards.
The Flyers telecast had another look.
Couturier retreated to the locker room for evaluation after the hit. Pre-series analysis picked him to be key for the Flyers’ success this series. Let’s see what happens next.
Update: He’s out.

Update 2: Via CSN Philadelphia, Sean Couturier is done for the series with an A/C sprain to his left shoulder.
