The Washington Capitals lost TJ Oshie to injury, likely longterm, after getting boarded in the third period of Game Four.
Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan has responded by calling up Devante Smith-Pelly from the Hershey Bears. DSP had 14 points in 20 games with the Bears after being sent down in February. The forward tallied a hat trick in March against the Hartford Wolf Pack.
In a corresponding move, the Capitals sent down goaltender Vitek Vanecek.
