Alex Ovechkin returns after big hit from Nazem Kadri

Alex Ovechkin hit

Alex Ovechkin returned for the start of the second period of Friday’s Game 5 between the Capitals and Maple Leafs despite taking a huge hit to his knee from Nazem Kadri the previous period.

Ovechkin took a shot from Kadri to his knee, which many thought resulted in a serious injury. It was enough to make the Caps star leave the game.

Kadri was given a penalty for tripping, though many thought a clipping penalty was more appropriate.

Ovechkin received cheers upon return for the second period. He registered a hit and two shots on goal in the first five minutes of the period.
