The Washington Capitals conclude their two game north of the border road trip tonight in Montreal against the Canadiens. The lineup should look different after they called up defenseman Hardy Haman Aktell from the Hershey Bears while subsequently placing Charlie Lindgren on IR.
Nic Dowd did not practice yesterday. He missed the game Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators due to an upper body injury. Missing practice was due to another maintenance day.

It looks like Hardy Haman Aktell will lineup on the third defensive pairing with Trevor van Riemsdyk. Matthew Phillips moves up to the top line and he highly deserves it.
The Caps need to step up and play better. That includes playing for all 60 minutes. Not 10 minutes like the first game or 40 minutes the second game or zero minutes the third game. A full 60. Alex Ovechkin will be looking for a good game himself as it’s the first time in his career he’s on a two game shot less streak.
