The Capitals held their game-day morning skate at 11:30am Monday morning at the Air Canada Center in Toronto. Karl Alzner did not participate.
Don’t see Alzner on the ice. Schmidt is taking rushes with Carlson. #CapsLeafs

The Capitals’ Public Relations people tweeted an update just before noon on Monday:
#Caps Karl Alzner will not skate this morning (maintenance day) and is a game-time decision

There were no other changes to the Capitals lines and defensive pairs. If Alzner is unable to play tonight, look for Nate Schmidt to take his place and be paired with John Carlson. We will update this post as details become available.
