Video: Alex Ovechkin flattens Mikhail Grabovski

Mar 11, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

Alex Ovechkin was kept off the scoresheet in Washington’s 2-0 victory over Toronto on Sunday, but he still made his presence known. You can see a clip of him leveling Mikhail Grabovski below:

In addition to leading the Capitals in goals and points, Ovechkin is second on the team in hits. His points production has declined over the past couple of seasons, but he’s still just as much of a physical force on the ice.

    As both an ardent supporter of the LA Kings and a lover of 70’s era Soviet hockey, I have to say that I have absolutely no time for this new-age, flaky, narcissistic, parasitic “what’s for dinner mum” pansy ! I therefore say “get lost” big man Ovi and take your junk with you ! You’re a “complete and utter” disgrace to the glorious Soviet greats who’ve preceded you and quite frankly, you and your ilk make me truly sick !

    PS to assorted friends: here’s an example of what Russian hockey was meant to be:

      Why even comment, apparently you don’t hate him enough to waste your time making a dumb comment. Go worry about your kings.

    Eh, he had at least one other much more impressive hit in the game. Not sure who it was on though.

    For some reason I think Ovie needs a new city with a well established coach who won’t put up with his BS.
    Once management gave him all that money the coaches lose credibility in his eyes.
    He thinks he’s untouchable, and in a way he is!
