Tom Wilson also scores in his first home game of the season, and Washington wins, 4-2.

Recovering from head injuries, the two top six forwards are still listed as "day-to-day," by Capitals Coach Todd Reirden.

Bowey has three assists in his past five games and remains in search of his first NHL goal.

Ovechkin scored two goals, but Price denied him the hat trick with some spectacular saves.

Evgeny Kuznetsov and T.J. Oshie, however, haven't skated since they both took hits to the head Wednesday night, and they'll miss their second straight against Montreal.

Holtby practiced in Montreal on Sunday afternoon, but Oshie and Kuznetsov, who both took blows to the head in Wednesday's game in Winnipeg, were not on the ice.

Evgeny Kuznetsov and right wing T.J. Oshie are both considered “day to day” with likely concussions, so Eller has been centering the top line with Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson.

Rookie netminder gets third start in four nights, earns win over ex-Capitals goalie Philipp Grubauer.

All three players are considered day-to-day with undisclosed upper-body injuries.

Jets defenseman Brandon Tanev will not face any supplemental discipline for his hit to the head of Evgeny Kuznetsov.

If Copley has to start a third straight game for the injured Holtby, it will be a revealing challenge for the rookie who has just eight games of NHL experience.

Sampson Coe and his wife are in the midst of a one-year journey around the world. He packed well.

Holtby got hurt before Wednesday night's game, while Kuznetsov and Oshie both went down from hits by the Jets. It's unclear if any of the three will be available against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Backup goaltender Pheonix Copley impressed, but Washington ultimately couldn’t match powerful Winnipeg.

Washington also signed the goaltending coach for the University of Manitoba women’s hockey team to be its emergency goaltender for the night.

While Washington's bruising forward may have to curb his physicality after a fourth suspension, the team is looking to him to provide more offense to a lineup that has struggled at even strength.

After his 20-game ban was reduced earlier in the day to make him eligible, Wilson seemed to jolt Washington to life in a 5-2 victory at Minnesota.

Wilson has already served 16 games of the original 20-game ban for an illegal check to the head, so he was in the lineup against the Wild to make his season debut Tuesday night.
