“I think that move gives us the flexibility,” Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette said. “Nothing changes for him. He’s a part of our team.”
Daniel Carr was called up from the taxi squad and will replace Daniel Sprong in the lineup.
“Daniel has worked really hard,” Laviolette said. “He’s a guy that has a good skill level. We liked it when he was in the lineup earlier in the year. He’s just been unavailable to us up until this point.”
Panik has 9 points (3 goals, 6 assists) in 36 games this season. He’s been a healthy scratch in three of the Capitals’ last five games coming into tonight’s game against Boston.
