In a matinee match up at the TD Garden, the Bruins faced the Washington Capitals in what could possibly be a preview of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
After Brad Marchand was suspended 2 games for cup checking Jake Dotchin, the NHL shows us just how much they protect their ‘star players’.
Ovechkin dangerously boards Bruins rookie Brandon Carlo, and wasn’t even called for a penalty on the play. Any time you have a hit on a defenseless player with his back facing you on the boards, it’s a no no, but Ovi gets away with it… sad
Carlo was ok after the hit, but it could have been a lot worse. Keep your head on a swivel Ovechkin…
