On Thursday, Michal Kempny took a hit from the Blue Jackets Josh Anderson which left his status for Game Two uncertain. He joined Jay Beagle (upper-body injury), and Travis Boyd (sickness), who were also out of the lineup heading into the playoffs.
The Caps had practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Saturday. Kempny, Beagle, and Boyd were all back on the ice. However, TJ Oshie was absent for a maintenance day, as reported by The Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan.
Following practice, Capitals head coach Barry Trotz, Kempny, and Beagle all spoke to the media about what to expect from the lineup for Game Two.
