Screencap: @SabresPlays

Washington Capitals center Nic Dowd left Monday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres with a lower-body injury. According to the team, he will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

During the second period, Dowd limped/crawled to the bench and would not return for the remainder of the game.

He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Dowd has been in and out of the lineup suffering from a lower-body injury, but it is unknown if this is related.

The Capitals are already without center Nicklas Backstrom (hip), T.J. Oshie (foot), and Anthony Mantha (shoulder).

    This is getting almost comical. Hopefully it is just cramps, but that looked pretty bad.

    Hard to believe the injuries that have hit the Capitals so far this season. We are keeping our heads above water, and the kids are getting valuable experience, so we are dealing quite well to this point.

      Much better now than the way they piled up at the end of last season. McMichel is growing with some steady games and I hope we see the same from Lapierre if they decide to burn a year (as now seems more likely). I will say fielding a full rookie line is a bit scary just yet against better teams, but……. The kids are playing and doing more than ok so far!
