NEW YORK — Bruins forward Brad Marchand was suspended three games without pay, including the Winter Classic, by the NHL on Wednesday for clipping Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki.

Marchand upended Borowiecki away from the puck during the first period in Boston's 7-3 home victory Tuesday night. The 5-foot-9 Bruins forward swooped down and took out the 6-foot-2 Borowiecki at his knees. Borowiecki wasn't injured.

Marchand was punished as a repeat offender. He has previously been suspended three times and fined another, including three lower-body infractions. One suspension came after a similar hip check on Sami Salo in 2012.

This suspension will cost Marchand $164,634.

The Bruins face the Canadiens in the Winter Classic on Friday at Gillette Stadium.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Alex Ovechkin scored twice during a four-goal rally in the third period and the host Capitals beat the Sabres 5-2 to extend their winning streak to nine games and overtake the Stars for the NHL points lead.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: The Red Wings assigned left wing Eric Tangradi to AHL Grand Rapids. Tangradi was called up this week but did not play.
