Ovechkin to be suspended?

Recommended Posts

Seems like Ovechkin may be getting a hearing from the DoPS. He hit Miller right in the numbers and had a couple of seconds to opt away from the hit but considering Ovechkin is a tank, he crushes Miller (who has had shoulder problems in the past) and Miller left the game and didn't return.





If you click the link and watch Marchand's interview with a reporter, it's hilarious how blunt and straightforward Marchand is to the reporter yet the reporter constantly tries to ask the same question but gets no response.





Alex Ovechkin recieved a five-minute major for boarding against the Boston Bruins Saturday night when he hit Kevan Miller from behind. He remained in the game and recorded an assist on a second period goal, but some wondered if Ovechkin should have been tossed for the hit.


Count Bruins coach Claude Julien as one who (likely) thinks Ovechkin should have been given the boot.



Miller, who’s had shoulder injuries in the past, immediately left the ice in distress and appeared to collapse in pain after leaving the ice. After the game, it was confirmed by reporters that he went to a local hospital.


On the other hand, Ovechkin called the hit “a hockey play” and suggested the referee who called the penalty didn’t think it was especially egregious either.



To measure them up, Ovechkin stands 6-foot-3, 239 pounds, while Miller is 6-foot-2, 210 pounds.

Julien's a whiner, but he's bang on in his assessment that virtually anyone else would have been tossed from the game for that hit.



pretty sure Ovie was just protecting himself...
