I wrote about it earlier, and it happened. The Punishment Czar gave Ovechkin 3 games for that illegal hit. He is considered a repeat offender, not this year but in previous years he has taken a few liberties. Because of these liberties, the NHL was not going to let this hit go unnoticed. I think it would have been fair to say that he would have gotten more games if Michalek would have been injured from the hit.
