COACH CRITICIZES OVECHKIN: Alex Ovechkin's slashing minor in the second period of Monday night's game against the Sabres marked his fifth minor penalty in the Capitals' past three games. With Ovechkin leading the team in minor penalties with 11 and penalty minutes with 22, coach Barry Trotz has had enough. "Unacceptable," Trotz said. "He's the leader. He can't take those penalties.'' They talked Tuesday, and Ovechkin was apologetic, saying: "Obviously, I have to be on the ice and not in the penalty box." On Saturday night, Ovechkin slashed Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman, and Tampa Bay scored on the resulting power play. Trotz said he would cut Ovechkin's playing time if the problems continue.
