Ovechkin was attacked after a historic goal. Alexander responded with a powerful blow to the jaw

The opponent poked Ovi below the belt, but quickly regretted it.

The pursuit of the Russian striker Alexander Ovechkin for Wayne Gretzky’s eternal record has attracted the attention of all hockey fans in recent seasons. Today, the captain of “Washington” moved to a new level, scoring an important goal.

But the joy of our hockey player after the historical puck was spoiled by the vile attack of the Canadian opponent right during the celebration. Alexander answered the offender with a strong blow to the head. The opponent will not forget such a lesson for a long time.

Psychologically important goal

Over the past few seasons, Ovechkin has only been focused on breaking Wayne Gretzky’s all-time goalscoring record. A few seasons ago, the mark of 894 goals seemed unrealistic. Few believed that Ovi would even get close to that number. But the ageless captain proves that even at the age of 37 you can show great performance.

Before the match with Philadelphia, Alexander had 793 goals. There were 101 goals left to the legendary Canadian. In the course of the meeting, Ovechkin had several opportunities to close the gap on the great Canadian, but he failed to score until the last seconds, when the “pilots” removed the goalkeeper.

A minute and a half before the final siren, Alexander punished Philadelphia for a risky step, reducing the gap from Gretzky to a hundred goals. But this did not teach the “pilots” anything. In pursuit of a possible victory, the coaching staff of the Pennsylvania club again removed the goalkeeper. For the remaining time, Ovechkin scored again, breaking the psychologically important mark. From this match, the backlog of the Russian from Gretzky is two-digit.

“I thought he did a humiliating feint”

In hockey, it is not customary to vigorously celebrate goals against an empty net. But this case is special. When you go all your life towards a cherished goal and overcome an important stage, it is difficult to keep emotions to yourself. But Alexander proved again that he is a true professional. There was not even the slightest hint of joy in his actions.

Also in hockey, it is not very common to score a second goal into an empty net when the advantage of the winners is two goals or more. But Alexander scored a brace, which greatly displeased the Canadian Philadelphia hockey player Travis Konecny.

When Ovechkin drove past the attacker, he vilely poked the Russian player with a low stick. Alexander decided to drive closer to the Canadian to figure it out. But Travis pushed the Russian hard with a club in the chest. Naturally, no one would like such behavior. A scuffle ensued. Ovi adequately responded to the opponent’s provocation. A left blow to the jaw, the Canadian will remember for a long time.

Other hockey players and judges who separated the players prevented a full-fledged fight from developing. After that, Konekny could not calm down for a long time, trying to continue the fight. But the referees out of harm’s way sent the bully to the locker room to cool his ardor.

– What made him angry? Probably because of my last puck into an empty net. The Philadelphia players have character, of course they were upset. But this is a game! – quotes the words of Alexander the press service of “Washington”.

The Canadian explained the unworthy actions in a very peculiar way. After the words of the attacker, I would like to advise him to go to the optometrist.

“I thought he made a humiliating feint. Maybe it wasn’t as bad as I first thought. We are tired of losing. Every time we talk about positive changes, giving ourselves completely in every match. But we hate to lose and are already tired of finding at least some pluses in this, ”the official NHL website quotes Konekny.

Despite the spoiled historical moment, Alexander was not very upset. There are less than a hundred goals left before Gretzky’s record, and in the three remaining years of the contract, Ovechkin is able to beat this achievement.
