News: Ovechkin recorded two more goals in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders. Impact: Ovechkin now ranks sixth in the league with 11 goals, and has 20 points in 21 games to date.

News: Ovechkin (upper body) confirmed after the Capitals' morning skate that he is "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Islanders. Impact: Ovechkin had been forced out of Tuesday's practice early with what was labeled as an "upper-body tweak," but the Capitals cleared him for a return after he participated fully at morning skate. The winger doesn't seem at risk of seeing a reduction in ice time Wednesday, so he can probably safely be viewed as a high-end fantasy commodity like usual.(RotoWire, )

News: Ovechkin left practice early with what is being described as an "upper-body tweak" and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Islanders, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports. Impact: Ovechkin will make the trip to New York and head coach Barry Trotz expects the reigning Richard Trophy winner to play, but given how important Ovechkin is to the Capitals, expect them to take every precaution. An ailment might explain Ovechkin's recent inconsistency, as he has gone without a point in four of his last five games. Even at less than full health, Ovechkin is a multi-category stud who needs to be played whenever he is in the lineup, so keep an eye on his availability prior to Wednesday night.(RotoWire, )

News: Ovechkin snapped a three-game scoring drought Thursday with a goal, an assist and a plus-2 in a 3-2 victory over Colorado. Impact: Both Ovi and his center, Nicklas Backstrom, got three-game monkeys off their backs Thursday. Ovi remains well off his usual pace, with a low shooting percentage by his standards (.106) one of the biggest culprits. He's about due to start one of his characteristic hot streaks; maybe Thursday was the first game of it.(RotoWire, )
