Lars Eller will miss tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks due to an upper-body injury. The Danish center is considered day-to-day.
The Capitals announced the news to traveling media before the game.
In his place, Aliaksei Protas will center the third line with Marcus Johansson and Anthony Mantha on the wings.
