Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin needed to be helped off the ice after taking a dangerous hit from Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri. Kadri was quick to point out that he isn’t trying to hurt anyone with the tactic, but he was close to doing just that in Game 5 when he set his sights on Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin. Ovechkin needed to be helped off the ice, his left knee clearly hyperextended after being chopped down by Kadri’s low bridge.
OTTAWA The Bruins dont know how long David Krejci will be out with an injury, but they know that the actions that took their playmaking center out of Game 5 helped fire them up for an eventual double-overtime win over the Ottawa Senators Friday night at the Canadian Tire Centre. Krejci, playing in just his third game of the series after missing the first two with an upper body injury, was taken out with a knee-on-knee hit from defenseman Chris Wideman in the closing minutes of the first period. Krejci would need help to the Bs dressing room after being down on the ice for long moments, and apparently the actions of the Senators immediately afterward helped fire up the Bruins for the 3-2 comeback win in double-OT that will bring the series back to Boston for a Sunday afternoon matinee.
