Last time the Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers played, the teams combined for 164 penalty minutes, a line brawl, a goalie fight, an angry John Carlson, and a partridge in a pear tree. While both teams said the right things leading up to today’s game, Caps captain Alex Ovechkin couldn’t help but send a message to the Flyers early in the game’s first minute: don’t mess.
[He probably said, hahahahahaha big hit so sickkkkk)))))) but you get the idea.]
As Brayden Schenn looked to pass to a teammate near the Flyers bench, Ovechkin, coming out for his first shift, caught the Flyers scrapper with a crushing hit.
Schenn left the ice bleeding, with a cut above his left eye.
Ovi wasn’t done yet.
He also tallied a beautiful assist on the game’s first goal, which I can only assume was dedicated to Ron MacLean. Now let’s argue about whose goal it was!
