Alex Ovechkin Says Suspension Might Make Him 'More Angry' ARLINGTON, Va. — Alex Ovechkin says he isn't going to
change his playing style because of a two-game suspension.

Asked about the penalty he received from the NHL for a
knee-to-knee hit, the Washington Capitals star said Wednesday it might make him
"more angry."

Ovechkin was ejected after the hit on Carolina's Tim
on Monday night, the second time in less than a week he has been tossed
from a game.

Coach Bruce Boudreau suggested Tuesday that he might talk
with Ovechkin about curbing some of his aggressive play, but on Wednesday the
coach said he's not going to tinker with the league's two-time reigning MVP.

Boudreau says he is "satisfied with the way he plays."
