Tuesday morning, the Washington Capitals scrimmaged the Reading Royals at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, winning in a nail biter by a score of 8-0. During the first period of the game, Alex Ovechkin and Marcus Johansson violently collided into one another. Since the game wasn’t broadcast online, we had to rely on tweets and blurry photos to try to imagine what happened. We all thought the worst.
Thankfully, both players ended up being okay, but after investigating CSN’s video of the hit, we don’t know how.
Wow. Thank you, Ovi’s concussion proof helmet.
