Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov suspended 2 games for boarding Flyers forward Brayden Schenn

Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov has been suspended for two games for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn.

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

Orlov launched into Scheen during the third period on Sunday and 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.
