Burakovsky Set To Return To Lineup


Andre Burakovsky has been a healthy scratch for the last three games, however it looks like his production-related hiatus will come to an end Wednesday night in Philadelphia. 

Practice lines at the Capitals Wednesday morning skate indicate that Burakovsky will indeed make his return tonight against the Flyers.

Burakovsky has not scored a goal since opening night, when he potted two goals against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

So far this season, Burakovsky has 8 assists to go along with his two goals, but hasn’t scored a point in his last seven games. Last season Burakovsky tallied a total of 38 points (17 goals, 21 assists). Burakovsky’s current 26-game goalless streak is the longest of his career.

It looks like John Carlson will be able to play tonight. Carlson missed yesterday’s practice due to illness.
