Ovechkin will not be playing tonight as reported by NJ.com.  Keep him benched.

But he also joked about how long his injury will keep him out so take it for what it’s worth.  Either way he’s not going to be 100% and Washington coach Bruce Boudreau has listed Alexander Ovechkin as a game-time decision.  Make sure you check for updates prior to the game so you can adjust your lineups accordingly.  The Caps take on the Devils tonight.

From Fire & Ice:

Although Ovechkin yelled from the ice “I’m playing tonight”, he remained on the for an extended hard skate after the other Capitals came off, usually an indication that a player is not playing.

Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said on the Capitals’ Web site that it will be “a game-time decision” whether Ovehckin makes his return tonight after missing the last five games with an upper-body strain.

“You never know,” Ovechkin said after the skate. “I didn’t talk to Bruce. He just told me to be ready.”
