Andrei Svechnikov in Concussion Protocol After Alex Ovechkin Fight

KasenTaylor1

Svechnikov did not return and is not expected to play in Thursday's Game 4, Hurricanes coach Rob Brind'Amour announced Tuesday.

The game itself was the last thing on people's minds though as Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin, and Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov got into a huge fight in the first period.

Reports indicate that Ovechkin and Svenchnikov had several rough encounters throughout the game, but according to ESPN, Svechnikov provoked Ovechkin at one particular point, and that's when they dropped their gloves and started pummeling each other.

After the game, Ovechkin told reporters that he doesn't consider himself a "big fighter" and that he hopes Svechnikov is "OK".

As Ovechkin skated to the penalty box for a five-minute fighting penalty, Svechnikov was flat on his back, dazed and struggling to sit up as teammates Jordan Staal and Justin Faulk skated to him.

Washington now leads the series two games to one after being defeated by Carolina 5-0 last night. He asked me to fight and I said, 'let's go, yeah.' I hope he's ok. Monday's bout was just the fourth fight of his career, and the first in eight years.

Svechnikov's head hit the ice on the way down. So, if that's the case, it's a little different.

Brind'Amour said he was "still sick to my stomach about it". He had one goal and two assists in the Capitals' first two games in these playoffs. If you watch the video, he slashes him twice - Ovi, whack, whack - then Svech gets him back.

"We got maybe a little bit frustrated and too confident".

"I just hated seeing that". Brind'Amour said, his voice trailing off, "but it's done".

"So that stuff bothers me, because that's ..."
