The two left the Capitals’ 4-3 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday at the end of the second period after colliding with one another. Neither returned to the game and were reevaluated yesterday.
The move to place Richard Panik on LTIR this morning resulted in an ACSL capture of $81,333,206, and gave the club $2,750,000 in cap space.
