Alex Ovechkin knocking out Carolina Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svetchnikov was the most fight the Capitals showed in Monday's 5-0 loss. Their first-period fight sent Svetchnikov to the locker room with the assistance of Carolina medical staff and he would not return.

Despite fighting for the first time since Dec. 12, 2010, Ovechkin's 40 pound and 14-year advantage on the 19-year-old Svetchnikov made the fight seem somewhat unfair and the Hurricanes made that clear postgame.

Brind'Amour bothered by Ovechkin's role in fight with Svechnikov

Brind'Amour bothered by Ovechkin's role in fight with Svechnikov Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour wasn't thrilled with Alexander Ovechkin after his fight with rookie Andrei Svechnikov in Game 3 on Monday night. The Russian countrymen dropped the gloves in the first period, and the much bigger Ovechkin dropped Svechnikov to the ice with a powerful right hand. Carolina's rookie was helped to the dressing room by trainers and didn't return due to an upper-body injury.

"I don’t really know what to say," Carolina defenseman Dougie Hamilton said postgame. "I kept thinking about him the whole game. I hated seeing that. I just feel so bad for him. The game doesn’t really matter when something like that happens, you just can’t get it out of your head. I just hope he’s okay."

Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour expressed his disappointment with Ovechkin for engaging in such a lopsided bout.

"I don't know if there's words exchanged, but one guy's gloves come off way first, and that's Ovi, not our guy," Brind'Amour said. "So it's a little bit frustrating because he got hurt. It's his first fight. He's played 90 games. He's never fought in his life, and I'm pretty sure Ovi knew that. So that stuff bothers me."

Despite series loss, Ovechkin does it all in 1st-round battle against Canes.
There's lots of talk that Alex Ovechkin can break Wayne Gretzky's goal-scoring record, but he looked more like Gordie Howe in Washington's first-round series against the Carolina Hurricanes. Playing like a man possessed and proving he can do just about anything for his team when it counts the most, Ovi had four goals, five assists and even a very rare fight in the seven-game series.
