The Washington Capitals released their roster for Friday’s preseason finale against the Philadelphia Flyers at Capital One Arena (7 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington locally, NHL Network nationally).
Head coach Peter Laviolette told the media earlier this week and Friday’s game will be a full dress rehearsal for Wednesday’s regular-season opener against the New York Rangers.
Fehervary and Samsonov, who each missed practice this week after sustaining injuries, will both be available. Center Nicklas Backstrom remains out with a hip injury.
Friday will mark the final time a few players like Malenstyn, Lapierre, McMichael, Irwin, and Kempny have to make strong showings before teams have to submit their 23-man roster on Monday at 5 PM ET.
