Bummer news. Defender John Carlson will not play in Monday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced.
Carlson participated in practice, but was a game-time decision for today. That decision it turns out is no.
From the Caps:

That leaves the team without its nominal number-one D and ice-time leader. It’s most likely that Radko Gudas will step into the lineup, but we’ll see shortly.
