The Canadiens defeated the Capitals in Washington on Friday night 5-2.  But they did win one exchange between Alex Ovechkin and Jonathan Drouin.

Ovechkin completely flattened Drouin with a big open ice hit.  The hit by Washington’s star left Drouin on the ice and slow to get up.


There’s at least one sport out there that hasn’t taken away the big hit.  They have cracked down on the shots to the head, but as you can see on this hit, you can still launch yourself to initiate contact.
