The Washington Capitals made line changes during practice on Tuesday prior to their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. This comes after the team lost 6-3 to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday, their fourth in the last five games (1-2-2).
They elevated forward T.J. Oshie to the top-line and demoted forward Tom Wilson to the second with center Evgeny Kuznetsov and forward Carl Hagelin. The third-line is made up of forward Jakub Vrana, center Lars Eller, and forward Garnet Hathaway. Forward Richard Panik was demoted to the fourth-line prior to Wednesday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Looks like a lineup shakeup at #Caps practice:
