Washington Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth left practice early Monday and is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Neuvirth appeared to sustain the injury when the Capitals were working on 3-on-none drills. He's 2-3-1 with a 2.83 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in seven appearances this season.

The Capitals are off until Wednesday, when they host the Ottawa Senators.

Also Monday, the Capitals recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from Hershey of the American Hockey League and reassigned defenseman Tyson Strachan to the Bears.

Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.

— Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville on Brandon Saad, who was traded by Chicago to the Columbus Blue Jackets this offseason
