Caps' Alex Ovechkin out again

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Washington forward Alex Ovechkin missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury when the Capitals played 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.
