The Capitals were hit by the injury bug again on Saturday against Columbus, as forward Chandler Stephenson suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury. Stephenson, listed as day-to-day by the Capitals, will not play tonight. Instead, Travis Boyd, recalled from Hershey Sunday, will play in his first NHL game.
Boyd will take Stephenson’s place on the third line in his debut. Tyler Graovac is the odd man out again.
