In the dwindling minutes of tonight’s game with the Boston Bruins, Gregory Campbell ran Alex Ovechkin headfirst into the boards. As Bruce Boudreau said in the post game press conference, “if [Ovi] doesn’t duck his head, he could have been seriously hurt.”
Alex was thankfully uninjured on the play. His response was characteristic and appropriate: fury.
First, observe Alex Ovechkin deliver a dainty, two-handed axe swing.
Next, Ovi commences the flirtation.
Perhaps Johnny Boychuk wants a spot on the dance card?
For their trouble, Campbell recieved a two-minute penalty for boarding and Ovechkin a two-minute penalty for slashing. No additional discipline is expected.
