Video: Marc Staal hits Alex Ovechkin below the belt

Now, this isn’t very nice.

Considering the long recent history of New York Rangers – Washington Capitals playoff series, Marc Staal and Alex Ovechkin probably aren’t huge fans of each other. At least when they actually get on the ice.

Maybe that explains the, um, transgression above?

We don’t know how if that was more of a light tap or a severe blow, but either way, it seems fair to share this bit of “low-sticking.”

Do you think a fine might come Staal’s way?

Update: Ovechkin got a measure of revenge with a nice goal, but the Rangers ended up winning 5-2.
