Whatever that was between the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, it died the way it lived: messily, physically, while blurring the lines of legality.
But if you rewind just a few moments, you’ll find a play that everyone can agree on: Sidney Crosby tripped the living hell out of Alex Ovechkin.
This is what a normal trip looks like after Rita Repulsa throws her staff at it from the moon. This is a trip inside a Gundam suit defending Tokyo from Alex Ovechkin. This is a Trump-era trip, and it still wasn’t called.
Conor Sheary went on to score the game-winning goal, which is clouded in controversy.
Ovechkin, as we all know, died. RIP Alex Ovechkin. RIP this game.
