WASHINGTON - Washington forward Alex Ovechkin will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury when the Capitals play the Florida Panthers.

The Capitals have not revealed the extent of Ovechkin's injury, other than to say it is not a concussion.

Entering Saturday, Ovechkin was tied for second in the NHL with 10 goals.
