This does raise eyebrows for the Capitals, who played the ‘Canes Sunday afternoon. Center Lars Eller returned to the lineup in the win over Carolina after contracting the virus during the team’s West Coast road trip earlier this month. He was required to quarantine in Anaheim, California, for ten days as a result of the NHL’s protocol.
The Capitals are back in action on Tuesday (7 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington) at FLA Live Arena visiting the Florida Panthers.
