Big Hit: Ovechkin Sends Schenn Over the Boards

Talk about getting your shift ended prematurely.

He's third on the NHL's all-time goals scored list among active players, behind only Jaromir Jagr and Jarome Iginla. And, he makes his presence felt in more ways than one. Alexander Ovechkin is a flat-out burly beast and here he plows Brayden Schenn into his own bench, and really, it didn't even seem to take that much effort from the 30-year-old Russian.

He just glides in and puts the hurt on.

When you are 6'3, 239 and made from the finest Russian steel, these things happen.
