SUNRISE, Fla. -- Washington Capitals forward Marcus Johansson did not make the trip along with his teammates and will sit out Tuesday night's game against the Florida Panthers.
Johansson sustained an upper-body injury Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins and sat out Saturday's 5-0 victory against the Panthers at the Verizon Center.
Johansson is listed as day-to-day. The Capitals' next game is Thursday at the Tampa Bay Lightning.
