Capitals star Alex Ovechkin knocked out the Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov in Game 3 of the first round of the National Hockey League playoffs Monday.

Though Carolina scored the first goal of this Game 3 for a 1-0 lead at first intermission, the team might be down two of their best forwards for the remainder of the game. For Svechnikov, the No. 2 pick in last year's draft who helped lead the 'Canes back into the postseason, it was his first in the big leagues.

The Hurricanes also announced that Micheal Ferland will not return to Monday's game.
