Washington Capitals: Two-time MVP Alex Ovechkin has been suspended for two games for a reckless hit. The forward knocked Chicago's Brian Campbell into the boards in the first period Sunday and received a game misconduct. Ovechkin will forfeit more than $232,000 in salary based on the number of games in the season instead of the number of days. Campbell, out with what the team is calling an upper-body injury, will miss the team's three-game road trip this week out West.
