Try following your team's reporters.
To answer your question: That's how it's been for years, back to the prime Boudreau years (no recollection of Hanlon). I think Ovechkin and Semin were the most frequent absentees. When Ovechkin was playing well, though, it was speculated that he needed the time off because his style of play put so much stress on his body, which may be true.
