Alexander Ovechkin Lays Out Andrei Svechnikov in Fight

VIDEO: Alexander Ovechkin Lays Out Andrei Svechnikov in Fight

On Tuesday, Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour provided an update on the status of Andrei Svechnikov, who was knocked out after absorbing three punches from the Capitals' Alex Ovechkin in Game Three.

The two Russians fought with 9:01 left in the first period, 86 seconds after Warren Foegele put the Hurricanes up 1-0. The Carolina forward fell to the ice and hit his head as the fight - which was always only going to have one victor - came to a quick and brutal end.

Carolina did not have an update on Svechnikov after the game.

As Ovechkin skated to the penalty box for a five-minute fighting penalty, Svechnikov was flat on his back, dazed and struggling to sit up as teammates Jordan Staal and Justin Faulk skated to him.

Svechnikov, the No. 2-overall pick in 2018, tallied 20 goals and 17 assists in 80 games during the regular season.

Washington now leads the series two games to one after being defeated by Carolina 5-0 last night.

Google blocks Chinese app TikTok in India after court order
YourStory reached out to TikTok about MeitY's directive to Google and Apple , and the company refused to comment on the matter. The top court referred the case back to the Madras High Court, which on Tuesday refused to lift the ban on the mobile app.

"First of all I hope he's okay", Ovechkin said. "... It's a little bit tough, because I just heard Ovi talk about it; he said our guy challenged him". It's his first fight.

Svechnikov eventually was able to stand but was wobbly as he was helped off the ice.

"So, it's a little but frustrating, because he got hurt".

A different angle of the tilt displays the gruesome moment a little clearer.

"If you watch the video, he slashes him twice - Ovi, whack, whack - then Svech gets him back", Brind'Amour said, per ESPN's Emily Kaplan. "I'll just leave it at that". "He has a special bond with our group, with me too", Brind'Amour said. He's played 90 games. Ovechkin won in an absolute landslide.
