NHL notebook: Sharks' Torres suspended for rest of playoffs

Sharks forward Raffi Torres was suspended for the rest of the Western Conference semifinal series against Los Angeles on Thursday for a hit to Kings forward Jarret Stoll's head.

Torres was assessed a minor penalty for charging for the second-period hit Tuesday night in the Kings' 2-0 victory in Game 1. Under the collective bargaining agreement, Torres is considered a repeat offender.

While playing for the Coyotes last season, Torres received a 21-game suspension — initially 25 games — for a high hit on Blackhawks star Marian Hossa in the first round of the playoffs.

• Alex Ovechkin played the last two games of the Capitals' season with what the team says is a hairline fracture in his left foot. Capitals spokesman Sergey Kocharov confirmed to The Associated Press that Ovechkin's foot was hurt during Game 6 of Washington's first-round playoff series against the Rangers. Ovechkin, who led the NHL with 32 goals in the regular season, scored only once in the series, as the Capitals were ousted in seven games. He played Thursday for Russia in an 8-3 loss to the United States in the world championships in Finland.
