Matt Hendricks's Hit On Ryan McDonagh Was Playoff Hockey At Its Best

We say it all the time: the Stanley Cup Playoffs are the best postseason in sports. Tonight's Capitals-Rangers game is headed to the second overtime, a fitting outcome in this year's OT-happy postseason, but the extended game hasn't dialed down any of the intensity.
