It is playoff hockey season and asses are being kicked. This fight was from the Washington Capitols, Carolina Hurricanes game the other day where the veteran Alex Ovechkin threw a knock out punch on 19-year old Andrei Svechnikov. Svechnikov is now going through concussion protocol. Andrei's big brother, Evgeny Svechnikov, is trying to make the Detroit Red Wings roster after sitting out all of this past season with a knee injury. Big brother took to Instagram, tagging Ovechkin in a post that read "One, two Freddy's coming for you," a nod to Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare On Elm Street movie franchise.
Locally, our Toledo Walleye continue their ECHL Kelly Cup playoff run in Fort Wayne, taking on the Komets in game three of the first round series tonight. Walleye lead that series 2-0.
