No Capitals Line Changes Ahead of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals


The Washington Capitals practiced Tuesday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena the day before Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. One question following their loss from Game 1 was addressed. The other question was will the Capitals make an adjustment to their lineup? From the line rushes, it looks like there will be no changes to the lineup for Game 2. There will not be a morning skate on Wednesday due to the 5 p.m. local time start. 

To refresh your memory, here were the lines from Game 1:


The top three forward lines each produced goals in Game 1 while John Carlson had a goal of his own. Washington only trailed by six in the shot department (34-28) and by four percent in the face-off battle (52%-48%).

Game 2 starts at 8 p.m. Wednesday night on the east coast.
