Kid on Message Board Threatens to Kill Ovechkin

Pittsburgh police and the NHL are investigating a threat made against Alexander Ovechkin. A 17-year old boy posted on a Penguins fan site that "I'm killing Ovechkin. I'll go to jail. I don't care anymore."

Needless to say, Ovie has added security for the Caps-Pens Game 4 in Pittsburgh.

Apparently the threat was made the afternoon before Wednesday's Game 3. Ovechkin scored his fifth goal of the series in that game, but the Capitals lost, 3-2 in OT.

The post was made on the Penguins official site. Police are questioning a teenager from Chambersburg, PA. His name hasn't been released because he's a minor.
