Alex Ovechkin was evaluated for a concussion after a brutal collision with teammate TJ Oshie on Wednesday night.
Ovechkin and Oshie ran into each other by the red line in the first period of Washington’s game at Toronto. While Oshie popped right back up after the collision, Ovechkin remained down and seemed to take the worst end of things.
