The Capitals announced Wednesday morning that Alex Ovechkin has sustained an upper-body injury and is listed as day-to-day. There is no word yet on how he suffered the injury. Ovechkin’s three shots on goal against the Canucks on Monday was his lowest total of the season, perhaps hinting that he was hurt before or during that game.
While Washington does not play again until Friday in Philadelphia, any injury to the team’s (and world’s) best scorer is a very big deal.
