WASHINGTON - Washington forward Alex Ovechkin will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury when the Capitals play the Florida Panthers.
Ovechkin, who missed Friday's 7-0 victory at the Philadelphia Flyers, was hurt in Monday's loss at Vancouver when he slammed head-first into the goalie net.
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.
