Yep, Ovechkin’s out tonight


Alex Ovechkin won’t play tonight in Ottawa. The Capitals’ top goal-scorer is out with a lower-body injury, reports the Washington Times.

Ovechkin left this morning’s practice after just eight minutes, shaking his head in frustration as he departed. When asked by reporters what was wrong, he said he “don’t feel pretty good.”

AHL call-up Keith Aucoin is expected to draw into the lineup against the Senators.
