Capitals star Ovechkin gets game misconduct in first period against Blackhawks

CHICAGO - NHL scoring leader Alex Ovechkin is out of the Capitals' game against the Blackhawks after receiving a five-minute major and a game misconduct in the first period for driving Chicago's Brian Campbell into the boards from behind.

Ovechkin raced up the ice and knocked Campbell into the boards behind the net at 7:44 of the opening period on Sunday.

Campbell stayed down for several minutes before he was able to leave the ice with a trainer at his side and head to the locker-room.

Ovechkin first went to the penalty box and then skated across the ice and into the locker-room.
