Arlington, VA (SportsNetwork.com) - Washington captain Alex Ovechkin will return to the lineup on Tuesday as the Capitals welcome the New York Islanders.

"I feel fresh. Of course you don't want to miss two games, but it happens and I'm back," Ovechkin said following a morning practice session.

The 28-year-old forward missed a 7-0 road win in Philadelphia on Friday and a 3-2 home shootout win over Florida on Saturday due to an upper-body injury.

Ovechkin totaled a team-high 10 goals along with 15 points in 12 games prior to sitting out.
