Alex Ovechkin has entered Covid protocol so he is out of tonight’s game. The Caps are coming off of an overtime win over Pittsburgh. The powerplay is still struggling and needs to make changes. There are many questions that remain such as who will be in goal for the Capitals? Vitek Vanachek was injured and Samsonov replacing him in last nights game. The other major question, is who will step up in the absence of Alex Ovechkin?
