Ovechkin Threat Traced

POLICE say they've traced an Internet death threat made against Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin to a 17-year-old boy.

Pittsburgh Lt. Kevin Kraus says the boy lives in Chambersburg, about 200 kilometers east-southeast of Pittsburgh. Kraus says state police have talked to the boy, but no charges were immediately filed.

The posting on an ice hockey message board read, "I'm killing Ovechkin. I'll go to jail. I don't care anymore."

The Capitals lead their playoffs series 2-1.
