WASHINGTON (AP) - Alex Ovechkin sat out the Washington Capitals’ game Tuesday night against San Jose because of personal reasons.

The Capitals sent out a note on Twitter about 35 minutes before the game saying Ovechkin would not play.

They had confirmed earlier in the day that the left wing did not take part in the team’s morning skate, and coach Barry Trotz said he would be a game-time decision.

Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in Saturday night in Washington’s season-opening victory over New Jersey. The Russian star missed only one game last season.
