Ovechkin KO's Svechnikov, 19, in Game 3 fight

Alex Ovechkin #8 of the Washington Capitals celebrates after scoring a first period goal against the Carolina Hurricanes in Game One of the Eastern Conference First Round during the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Capital One Arena on April 11, 2019 in Washington, DC.

In a scary brawl featuring two unlikely foes in Ovechkin - the grizzly future Hall of Famer and Svechnikov, the Carolina Hurricanes' 19-year-old wunderkind trying to follow in The Great 8's footsteps - the elder Russian won in a knockout fashion that would leave even Mike Tyson speechless. The coach does not expect him to play in Game 4 on Thursday.

Just 11 minutes into Monday night's first-round playoff game, the pair exchanged multiple blows until Ovechkin came in with the closer, knocking the teenager hard onto the ice. Brind'Amour told the outlet that Svechnikov has undergone concussion protocols, and that he seems to be doing a lot better. And that's Ovi, not our guy.

Capitals coach Todd Reirden had a different take on the whole thing: "I see it as two willing combatants". That's the worst part of it that you see when guys get hurt. Monday's bout was just the fourth fight of his career, and the first in eight years. He's never fought in his life, and I'm pretty sure Ovi knew that.
