At the end of the first period of the match of the regular championship of NHL between “Vegas Golden knights” and “Washington capitals” (3:2) there was a funny episode.
The capitals team captain Alexander Ovechkin in the middle area came into the fight with the hosts ‘ defender Nathan Schmidt.
In the end, the Russians pushed the American to the side and used a not quite pure power reception. Ovechkin blow was such force that Schmidt fell over Board and was on his own bench.
Only a miracle Ovechkin was not seriously injured – the skate of a defender whistled near the jaw forward.
