Wednesday night, Justin Williams was a surprise scratch. The 35-year-old winger did not skate during pregame warmups and later was announced to have a lower-body injury. Jay Beagle, Barry Trotz’s “Mr. Fix It,” took Williams’ spot on the second line.
After the Caps 5-3 victory over the Boston Bruins, Trotz commented on Williams’ injury. He did not reveal much.
