ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) The Washington Capitals say center Evgeny Kuznetsov is day-to-day with an upper body injury and won't play Sunday at the Philadelphia Flyers.

Kuznetsov was slashed in the left wrist/arm by New York Islanders defenseman Thomas Hickey and crashed into the boards in the same place Friday night in the Capitals' 5-1 victory Friday night. Kuznetsov left the game and did not return.

Coach Barry Trotz said after the game he didn't have an update, adding Kuznetsov would be evaluated Saturday. The Capitals had the day off after back-to-back games and will not hold a morning skate before facing Philadelphia.
