Scary moment here at RBC Center — Alex Ovechkin just collided with Tim Gleason and both were injured on the play. It was a knee-on-knee hit, and Ovechkin was given a 5-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct.
It is the second ejection in three games for Ovechkin, but that is the least of the team’s worries. He went to the dressing room and couldn’t put any weight on his right leg.
Gleason also went the dressing room but it appears he has returned to the game.
More as this develops.
