Alex Ovechkin fought the Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov in the first season of Game Three. Ovechkin got Svechnikov in three straight rights and the rookie did not return to the game. The Hurricanes ride the momentum with a 5-0 dominant victory.
The tension ended after the sound of the buzzer. The head coach of the Hurricanes, Rod Brind & # 39; Amour said the battle was "beneficial to me". Svechnikov's older brother Evgeny, who plays in the Detroit Red Wings organization, went on a more mysterious route.
The 22-year-old forward sent threats to Ovechkin through his Instagram story. Using a line from the movie A Nightmare on Elm Street Evgeny published the words "One, Two, Freddy's coming for you" and tagged Ovechkin's account.
