Capitals promote Jakub Vrana to first line, Andre Burakovsky to second ahead of Saturday’s game in Calgary
On Friday the Capitals shook up their lines following Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Most notably, Jakub Vrana earned a promotion to the first line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov.
Andre Burakovsky replaces Vrana on the second line after a strong couple games on the fourth line. Burakovsky scored his first goal of the season Thursday night in Edmonton.
On the blue line, Madison Bowey works his way into the line up, as Christian Djoos misses out with his first healthy scratch of the season.
