ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -The Washington Capitals say Alex Ovechkin is "week-to-week" with an upper-body injury.

The Capitals said Monday that the two-time league MVP suffered an "upper-body strain" in Sunday's overtime loss to Columbus.

Ovechkin was at the Capitals' practice facility on Monday for treatment. He also underwent an MRI exam.

If Ovechkin is out a week, he would miss three games: Wednesday at New Jersey and home-and-home against Florida on Friday and Saturday.

Ovechkin has missed only two games due to injury since coming to the NHL in 2005.
