Entries with the tag: suspensions
By now, we’ve all seen the “push” from behind that Alexander Ovechkin delivered upon Brian “Soupy” Campbell on Sunday. Ovechkin received five for boarding, a game misconduct and an automatic ejection. Campbell received a broken clavicle and broken ribs and will miss the remainder of the season. It’s also believed that he has suffered a grade 2 concussion. This is Ovechkin’s third game misconduct of the season and his second for boarding, but contrary to public opinion, it does NOT carry a mandatory suspension. We will, though, get to see what Colin Campbell is made of after playing his “consistency” card last week.
