Ovechkin not in lineup when Capitals host Senators

WASHINGTON -- Alex Ovechkin will miss the Washington Capitals' game against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday with a lower-body injury.

Ovechkin "got a little banged up" in Washington's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday, coach Adam Oates said. He did not participate in pregame warmups after being deemed a "game-time decision" Tuesday morning.

It will be the third game that Ovechkin has missed due to injury this season; he sat out two games in early November with a right shoulder injury.

The Capitals will look to snap their season-high five-game winless streak (0-3-2) without their captain and the NHL's leading goal scorer. Ovechkin has scored three of the team's seven goals during the winless skid.

Washington is 13-8-2 without Ovechkin since he entered the League in 2005-06.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
