Videos- Ovechkin Hit On Komarov Plus Holzer Punch Hits Linesman

from the CP at TSN,

Leo Komarov took an elbow to the head from Alex Ovechkin early in the first minute of the third period and did not return.

Carlyle was asked if Komarov went through concussion protocol following the hit.

"Well he didn't feel good so that's what we did," said Carlyle. "We held him out and he's going to be having further evaluation. He seems fine now, but they all seem to be fine."

As for the hit, Carlyle said, "I thought it was kind of 'oops I hit you on purpose'."

 

 

In the same game, this happened too...

During a fight with Wilson late in the third period, Toronto's Korbinian Holzer struck linesman Steve Miller with a punch while linesman Greg Devorski was trying to restrain him.

"That was not intentional— I had my jersey in my face. I just threw a punch and I accidentally got the linesman," said Holzer of the incident. "I'm really sorry for that and I hope he's fine, If there's a chance, I'd like to go by apologize."

The Leaf defenceman and Wilson each received five minutes for fighting and 10 minute misconducts.

Holzer is hoping the league understands his strike on Miller was accidental and that there will be no repercussions for his actions.
