Jakub Vrana calls Peter Laviolette scratching him two games disappointing: ‘The only thing I can control is go out there and work my ass off’
Jakub Vrana will return to the lineup for the first time in two games after Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette punished the Czech forward for his play without the puck. Laviolette said that he wanted a “higher level” and hoped to see Vrana more competitive and play with even more speed.
Tuesday, Vrana spoke to the press for the first time since he was benched by the first-year Capitals coach. Vrana is normally joyful, honest, and fun with the press, but during his presser today, he appeared uncomfortable, joyless, and evasive. He called the situation “disappointing.”
