For those who need some background on this, Alexander Ovechkin is a 30 something year-old seasoned veteran in the league. He's a monster and basically made of stone. Svechnikov is a 19 year old fresh in the league and decided he wanted to go toe to toe with one of the greatest/toughest pure goal scorers in the league. What led up to this? Don Cherry will tell you
So basically the kid was asking for it and he got crunched. Svechnikov is 6'2", 195lbs. Ovi is 6'3", 235lbs. Just a complete mismatch. For a good laugh though the NBC feed is where you need to go
Pierre Mcguire losing his mind screaming at the Carolina bench to get the trainer out. God love him. God bless playoff hockey. Ovi has fought 4 times in his entire NHL career. What the hell did that kid say to him to make him drop the gloves??
Why you would ever want to mess with this guy....
You'd have to be a madman
