After a two-day break, the Washington Capitals returned to the ice as they try to manage a COVID-19 outbreak.
They were greeted at practice with not much good news. Carl Hagelin missed practice due to illness but did not test positive for the disease. The Athletic’s Tarik El-Bashir also reported that goaltending coach goalie coach Scott Murray is now in COVID protocol, joining Nic Dowd, Garnet Hathaway, and Trevor van Riemsdyk in quarantine.
But the biggest and most concerning news was that Evgeny Kuznetsov left practice with a lower-body injury. It’s unclear how serious the injury is or when exactly he suffered it.
