In my opinion its the media overreacting. Keith Jones first time in between the benches making a big deal out of nothing - trying to hit a home run to show he should be down in the benches more. Ovechkin wasn't benched - the 3rd line was productive so it was chosen to try and get the tying goal. It had looked dangerous all game and had already produced 2 goals, so it deserved the chance. Ovechkin was out just before that line and then again in overtime (and contributed to the game winning goal).

Unless I've missed something from the Caps in the news - I think this says more about the Caps "third" line then it does about Ovechkin (note I say says more - not saying that it says nothign about Ovie).
