KasenTaylor1

Alex Ovechkin has knocked out a rising National Hockey League star Andrei Svechnikov with just a few powerful punches as things got heated between the Washington Capitals and the Carolina Hurricanes during the latest Stanley Cup playoff round.

Svechnikov asked Ovechkin to fight despite giving up almost 40 pounds to the Russian machine.

Andrei Svechnikov had to know who he was picking a fight with.

Ovechkin challenged Svechnikov to the fight after the 19-year-old cross-checked him several times in front of Washington's net.

Ice hockey legend Alex Ovechkin used his fists to keep the dream of another Stanley Cup triumph alive as the Washington captain threw down with his younger rival, putting the rookie in his place when he dared to square up with the 33-year-old. Dubinsky won the fight, ending up on top of Ovechkin after the two landed a couple of punches.

Alex Ovechkin fights Carolina rookie Andrei Svechnikov during the first period of Game 3.

Tempers flared enough for Ovechkin to indulge in just the fourth fight of his career, and first since almost a decade ago, according to HockeyFights.com.

Though Carolina scored the first goal of this Game 3 for a 1-0 lead at first intermission, the team might be down two of their best forwards for the remainder of the game.
