NHL GAME OF THE DAY

Alex Ovechkin scores, then ejected in Capitals win

Washington beats Buffalo, 2-0, but star is kicked out of the game for a major penalty.

November 26, 2009

Washington — Semyon Varlamov made 25 saves for his first regular-season shutout, Alex Ovechkin scored before drawing a third-period ejection, and the Washington Capitals beat the Buffalo Sabres, 2-0, Wednesday night.

Eric Fehr also scored for the Capitals, who had lost four of five. Varlamov, who had two shutouts in the playoffs last spring against the New York Rangers, wasn't severely tested until the third period, when Ovechkin's absence put Washington at a disadvantage.

Ovechkin drew a major for boarding and a game misconduct 3:38 into the third period when he ran Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta into the boards.
