Sometimes it can be hard to tell when a game changed. There was no hiding when, and how this game did.
It all took place during the opening minutes of the third period. Kris Letang and Alexander Ovechkin were chasing down a puck. And this happened:

With a goal already under his belt, Alex Ovechkin decided to turn things up a notch against the Penguins with a cheap shot on defender Kris Letang.

Letang helped on goals by Nick Spaling, Steve Downie...

According to the Penguins, the condition is treatable with blood thinners and at this point is not believed to be career threatening, which is obviously great news. More from the...
