Caps' Ovechkin Ejected In 3rd Period

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington star Alex Ovechkin was ejected in the third period Friday night against Buffalo after drawing a major penalty for boarding.

The banishment came 3:38 into the third period when he ran Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta into the boards opposite the benches.

It was the second career ejection for Ovechkin, and both have come against Buffalo at Verizon Center. The first was Dec. 2, 2006, when he checked Daniel Briere from behind.

Ovechkin scored his team-leading 17th goal in the first period.
