Feisty Ovi: Alex Ovechkin Checks Brandon Sutter Into the Pens Bench, Punches Sidney Crosby in the Head (GIF)
While the Washington Capitals played great against the Pittsburgh Penguins, they fell 3-2, losing another game they really needed to win. But it wasn’t for a lack of effort.
Caps captain Alex Ovechkin attempted 8 shots, 4 of them on goal, and recorded an insane 7 hits, leading all players.
His most impressive collision was his third-period hit on center Brandon Sutter, which sent the center tumbling into the Penguins bench.
