Capitals defenceman Orlov suspended 2 games for boarding Flyers forward Schenn

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The NHL has suspended Washington Capitals defenceman Dmitry Orlov for two games for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.

Orlov launched himself from the ice and hit Schenn from behind in the third period of Philadelphia's 5-4 overtime win over Washington on Sunday.

Orlov was given a major penalty on the play. Schenn remained in the game after the hit.

Orlov, who has no history of fines and suspensions in the NHL, will lose US$7,076.92 in salary.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
