Referees ended the first period of the NHL game with Ovechkin’s participation ahead of schedule

Defender “Washington” Nick Jensen briefly lost consciousness during a regular season NHL game against “Tampa.”

A minute and a half before the end of the first period, the hockey player suffered a powerful tackle from Lightning forward Michael Eissimont. The player needed a stretcher and the referees decided not to continue the first period. The remaining playing time was made up in the second half.

“At first, when you see something like that, when someone needs a stretcher, you think the worst. But he’s better. He left the arena with his family. He didn’t go to the hospital. The situation looks positive,” the Washington Post quoted Capitals head coach Spencer Carbery as saying.

Washington beat Tampa 4:2. Russian Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin had no impact.

This NHL season, Jensen participated in 78 games in which he recorded 1 goal and 13 assists.
