Capitals' Orpik suspended 3 games for hit on Maatta

WASHINGTON (AP) Washington Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik was suspended three games for his late hit to the head of Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta.

Orpik will miss Game 3 Monday, Game 4 Wednesday and Game 5 Saturday. He'd be eligible to return if the series gets to Game 6 on May 10.

Orpik hit Maatta in the head after the puck was gone four minutes into Game 2 Saturday and was given a two-minute minor penalty for interference. After a hearing with the NHL's department of player safety, the punishment was far more severe.
