Forward Carl Hagelin, who has missed the past two games with an upper-body injury and is labeled as day-to-day, will not travel with the Washington Capitals for their game at the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night (7:30 PM ET, NBCSN). Head coach Todd Reirden said that he has not resumed skating yet.
Forward Richard Panik was elevated to the third line, where he played before he suffered a lower-body injury on October 16, while Garnet Hathaway was demoted to the fourth.
Goaltender Braden Holtby will start against the Flyers on Wednesday night.
Everything was the same for Capitals at practice today with Carl Hagelin (upper body) again not skating with the team:

Wife and I will be at the game in Philly tomorrow right behind Hart for periods 1 and 3. Hoping for an Ovie hattrick!
Good Luck Esteban!
And Richard Panik is on audition again. When will he contribute something to the team? Frustrating. It’s a long season.
Easy buddy. Caps are night and day systematically to the Coyotes and of course now he’s just recovered from an injury. Panik will find his way.
