Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri had an ugly hit on Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin during the first period, which led to a penalty and the Capitals’ first goal of the game.

Kadri going down like he took a sniper bullet to the knee may have been a bit over exaggerated, but give him credit for selling it. Especially considering he had to know this was coming, whether his shot against Ovechkin was intentional or not.
