Five minutes into the second period of the Capitals’ first playoff game in Boston, Alex Ovechkin skated the puck into the neutral zone looking to make a play. As he did, Dennis Seidenberg made a decision he might regret.

The Bruins defenseman thought he could catch Ovi napping at the red line and destroy him with an open-ice body check. Instead, the Russian machine got his arms up and this happened.

Ouch! Looks like this is going to be one physical series. And Ovi’s loving every minute of it.

    funny, Seidenberg stayed out on the ice and kept playing & Ovechkin went right to the bench… I wouldn’t say Seidenberg was ‘destroyed”
