Hit of the Year: Ovechkin Helicopters PK
The Capitals don’t have much love for the Montreal Canadiens after last season (let us not speak of this again). So this year they took three out of four in the regular season series and let Alex Ovechkin loose on PK Subban.
Subban tried his darndest to avoid Ovechkin in this sequence, but the result was catastrophic for Montreal’s young defenseman. Washington’s star forward unceremoniously dumped Subban at center ice and then the latter found himself in the box for “rudeness?” (If you’re confused pay close attention to the video at :37. Gotta love those Canadians.)
