The Washington Capitals held their gameday morning skate Tuesday morning at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. They host the New York Islanders tonight at Capital One Arena.
Team captain Alex Ovechkin did not participate in this morning’s workout. Ovechkin suffered an upper body injury in the third period of Sunday night’s game against the Maple Leafs and was listed “day-to-day” by the Capitals on Monday.
It should be noted that Ovechkin has not been officially ruled out for tonight’s game. He just didn’t participate in the team’s morning skate.
Capitals say Alex Ovechkin will not participate in the morning skate today. He remains day to day with an upper body injury. Expect update on his status for tonight from coach Peter Laviolette after skate
