Svechnikov in concussion protocol after fight with Ovechkin

VIDEO: Alexander Ovechkin Lays Out Andrei Svechnikov in Fight

VIDEO | Alexander Ovechkin knocks out Andrei Svechnikov

Svechnikov and the Carolina Hurricanes were taking on the Capitals and Ovechkin when the 19-year-old decided it would be a good idea to pick a fight.

Transitioning to home ice proved beneficial for the Hurricanes as they shutout Washington to win their game in the series.

In his postgame interview Ovechkin said he hoped Svechnikov was okay but also said the rookie wanted to fight. Svechnikov, a Russian scoring winger, had said earlier in the series that Ovechkin is someone he looked up to growing up.

There was nothing at all wrong with Foegele, who had his team's first two-goal post-season game since Eric Staal in Game 4 against Boston in the second round in 2009.

After the game, the Hurricanes were shocked by the fight. Perhaps Jakub Vrana and Brett Connolly, two 20-goal scorers playing on the third line with Lars Eller, are due for a breakout performance. The Hurricanes are 3-8 in their last 11 after shutting out their opponent.

"It's one of the hardest things I've had to go through on the ice", said Hamilton, who scored his first playoff goal since May 3, 2014, with Boston. "We just have to forget about it and move forward", he added. They need to throw more pucks at Petr Mrazek to win.

Carolina's Micheal Ferland also left in the first period because of an upper-body injury. If that is the case, it will put even more pressure on the players lining up in their top-six to deliver. He has two goals and one assist in the first three games of his Stanley Cup career. On the opposite end of the rink, Tuukka Rask made 31 saves for Boston.

Russia's Andrei Nikolishin, the ice hockey world champion and the bronze medalist of the 2002 Olympics, said Svechnikov underestimated his chances by provoking a fight with such experienced player as Ovechkin. They've played well ever since their young star was knocked out.
