Capitals’ Orlov Suspended 2 Games By NHL

WASHINGTON — Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov has been suspended by the NHL for two games for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.

The suspension, announced on Monday, will cost Orlov $7,076.92 in salary.

Orlov launched into Schenn during the third period of Sunday’s game and he was assessed a major penalty. The infraction helped the Flyers rally from a 4-2 deficit for a 5-4 overtime win.

After the suspension was announced, the Capitals recalled defenseman Jack Hillen from Hershey of the AHL. Hillen had been with Hershey for a conditioning stint after rehabbing a fracture in his right leg.
