Alex Ovechkin scored two goals in Washington's 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders.

Both Ovechkin's goals came on the power play. The 29-year-old has 11 goals and 20 points in 21 games this season. Ovechkin has registered over a point-per-game in eight of his nine NHL seasons and he should reach that mark again this season. If he stays healthy, he's a good bet to hit 80 points. Six of Ovechkin's 11 goals have been scored on the man-advantage.

Coach Ken Hitchcock said Brian Elliott is "week-to-week" with a lower-body injury.

"We'll kind of address it every Sunday and see how he is," Hitchcock said. "That's about as close as I can give you right now. He's had this type of injury before and has recovered quickly and nicely so we're hoping for the former but we don't want to say it's five or six days and then it's 14 so we'll leave it at that." He also hinted that goalies need their knees, so that's likely what he injured on Tuesday night.

He could be back next week, but he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's match against Ottawa.
