Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Washington Capitals star forward Alex Ovechkin, who is the NHL's leading goal scorer, will miss Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators with a lower-body injury.

Ovechkin "got a little banged up" in Washington's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday, coach Adam Oates said. Ovechkin sat out two games in early November with a right shoulder injury.

The Capitals won both of the contests he sat out with that ailment. The 28- year-old Ovechkin has 35 goals and 14 assists in 47 games this season.
