Lines: Lars Eller replaces injured Nic Dowd on fourth line, Hendrix Lapierre and Connor McMichael both in lineup
The Washington Capitals will play the Ottawa Senators in Ottawa on Monday night. The Capitals could be without two of their main centers when they make the trip over the border.
The team announced on Sunday that center Nic Dowd is out day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Nicklas Backstrom is out until at least November 6 due to being placed on long-term injured reserve and only just recently started individual work on the ice.
Due to that, Peter Laviolette has had to make a few adjustments to his forward lineup.
