Ovechkin Speared Accidently

from the Beaver County Times,
Ovechkin was stretched out on the ice after he was speared in the abdomen by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ryan Whitney at the end of the second period at Mellon Arena. Whitney could be facing additional punishment after the NHL reviews the incident. He was given a major for spearing and a game misconduct. "He was coming to the net and I was going to try to get to him and box him out," Whitney said. "I went to put my stick between his legs to lift his stick up, but I just got him too high. I didn't mean to spear him, it was just an accident."
