Zach Fucale to get second straight start, Nicklas Backstrom and TJ Oshie both in line to return against Bruins
After some bad news about Dmitry Orlov, the Caps got some good news on both Nicklas Backstrom and TJ Oshie. The two forwards, who were recently placed on injured reserve due to catching the flu, took the morning skate and were full participants in line rushes.
If they take the ice against the Bruins it will be their first game back since December 31 against the Red Wings in Detroit.
After another sparkling performance in Minnesota, goaltender Zach Fucale will also get a start in back-to-back games for the first time in his NHL career.
