The league's reigning two-time MVP was suspended for two games without pay by the NHL on Tuesday for a knee-to-knee hit on defenseman Tim Gleason in Monday night's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. Ovechkin's first NHL suspension will cost him $98,844.16 in salary. He'll sit out Thursday against the Panthers and Saturday in Philadelphia.

Before it was a design element, it was beer. In December 2001, Molson introduced to Canada the 5-liter, 22-inch-tall mini-kegs, known affectionately as "Bubbas." Since then, sales have soared and the quirky product has won the hearts of brew- and kitsch-loving Canadians. Some limited-edition hockey-themed cans, for goodness' sake, are going for $350 on eBay. The appeal isn't so much the beer as it is the aluminum shell and its design potential. Empty Bubbas are being turned into patio lanterns, lamps, birdhouses and, if you stack them just right, TV stands.

Beverages can be a refreshing antidote for the summertime stock market blues. Shares of Anheuser-Busch Cos., the world's largest brewer, are up 5 percent this year. Steven Ralston, senior analyst with Zacks Investment Research, said it is an attractive purchase because it has about half the U.S. beer market. Aside from Budweiser, it also owns 50 percent of Mexico's Grupo Modelo, maker of Corona beer, and recently purchased the Rolling Rock brand. These are reasons why Warren E. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway owns 44 million Anheuser-Busch shares.

Shareholders of Molson Inc., Canada's largest brewer, voted yesterday to approve its merger with Adolph Coors Co., the No. 3 U.S. brewery, all but sealing the deal that had met stiff criticism from Canadian investors. Coors shareholders, who will vote in Golden, Colo., on Tuesday, also are expected to ratify the deal, which will create the world's fifth-largest brewer with $6 billion in annual sales. If that happens, the historic Adolph Coors Co. name will disappear in favor of Molson Coors Brewing Co. The U.S. operating unit will continue to be called Coors Brewing Co. The deal, announced in July, required approval by two-thirds of both classes of Molson shareholders.

In his four years working in Philadelphia, Brett Marchand learned plenty about being a misunderstood Canadian. Marchand's friends would ask if Ontario was a state or a city. His colleagues at Campbell's Soup Co., where Marchand worked in marketing, snickered when he said "past-a" instead of "pawsta." Once, during a meeting where an Australian was delivering a speech sprinkled with war metaphors, the company's former CEO turned to Marchand and remarked that an Aussie talking about war was about as absurd as hearing about it from a Canadian.
