Ovechkin suspended two games; Ballard receive no punishment


Following up on my piece from this week, it has been widely reported that Alexander Ovechkin will receive a two game ban for his knee-on-knee hit on Carolina's Tim Gleason. As for Florida's Keith Ballard and his akward stick swinging incident, he will not receive any supplementary discipline, which as you all know, I firmly disagree with. I shall leave with a few interesting links pertaining to these recent events, including the footage of the two incidents.VIDEO: Ballard's swing on VokounVIDEO: Ovechkin kneeing on GleasonARTICLE: Ken Campbell, from The Hockey News, reacts to the Ballard incident.  


I think he's a spoiled brat and don't really like him, but must admit he ia an amazing player. I don't even think he's a good skater. But even in interviews on TV he seems like a jerk.
