A physical Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs became even more physical during the second period.
The hitting seemed to go up a notch in the second period after there were several high hits and late hits in the game's opening period, including one from Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin, which resulted in a two-minute minor for elbowing.
It was a scary moment for Capitals fans and everyone connected with Caps forward Nic Dowd.
"I don't see head contact," Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour said to NBC's Pierre McGuire. "The frustrating part is they said it was a hit to the head when I didn't see it as a hit to the head."
While speaking to McGuire, Brind'Amour made reference to the Ovechkin hit, saying he thought it contained more contact to a player's head.
