  • Ovechkin made his return to the ice after a brief absence Thursday and potted the game-winning goal with 2:40 remaining to ensure a 3-2 win over the Islanders. Ovie was forced to miss Tuesday's game after sitting out the All-Star Game with a lower-body injury, and the Caps basically punted that one, starting backup goalie Philipp Grubauer and taking a rare loss. But clearly the ailment was no big deal, as the superstar winger has now drawn within one goal of clearing 30 for the 11th time in his 11 NHL seasons.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Will play Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ovechkin (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Islanders. Ovechkin missed the All-Star Game because of the lower-body issue, forcing him to skip the Caps' first game of the second half as well due to a mandatory one-game suspension. It appears the rest was enough for the star winger, and he'll rejoin the lineup Thursday to face an Islanders club that allowed 3.11 goals per game in January.

  • Ovechkin (lower body) expects to be ready to rejoin the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. By rule, Ovechkin will need to sit out of the first game following the All-Star break due to his missing the All-Star Game, making Thursday the star winger's first eligible date to return. While the team should update his status again as the contest approaches, it certainly appears he's on track to dress.

  • Ovechkin will sit out the All-Star game with a lower body injury and will be forced to miss the Capitals' first game following the break, the club announced Wednesday. Because of NHL rules, Ovechkin will be ineligible for the Capitals' contest Tuesday against Florida. It doesn't sound like this is a major injury, as Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said "we believe it is better if he uses this time to heal and ideally be completely healthy for the duration of the season." He is officially day-to-day, but he should be fully ready to go by Washington's second post-break game Thursday, February 4 against the Islanders.
