Matt Hendricks was in some kind of mood tonight. It’s already been the postseason of the grinders for the Washington Capitals, but Hendricks took that to a whole new level with 9 SOG and 10 hits, including one building-shaking crusher on Ryan McDonagh 4:20 into overtime. Video is below the jump.

It was the hit of the playoffs — and clean, too, though McDonagh was clearly shaken following the play.

Hendricks has not shown up on the scoreboard tonight yet, but anyone who watched the game knows that #26 was a dominating force.

    This reminds me how awesome the hit stick was when they put it in Madden games

    Even more impressive than the hit was the superb play that followed – he played the puck behind the net and fed Brower a beautiful pass for a point blank shot that Lundquist stopped.

    I believe the shot actually went wide

    I still say he should be tried on the top line for a few shifts…
