Capitals’ Backstrom, Oshie Out With Non-COVID Illness; Schultz, Sprong, Jensen Activated From Protocol List

Prior to their tilt against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, the Washington Capitals made several transactions and scratches, which include center Nicklas Backstrom and right-wing T.J. Oshie not playing today due to non-COVID-19 illnesses.

Center Lars Eller, who missed Friday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings with a non-COVID illness, was on the ice for warmups.

Center Michael Sgarbossa was activated from the taxi squad while defenseman Lucas Johansen was sent to the taxi squad. Defensemen Justin Schultz and Nick Jensen along with forward Daniel Sprong were placed on the active roster.

Additionally, the Capitals re-assigned center Aliaksei Protas to the AHL’s Hershey Bears.

    HIPPA Laws just don’t matter in sports? They diagnose Personal health to the world when they have the hoax Covid, but when the PCR Test doesn’t show a positive, it becomes listed as ‘non Covid’??!? Are we supposed to be relieved? Are we supposed to pretend if they had ‘Covid’, we are supposed to worry they might die? Or is that worry now gone? If it’s gone, why are we still going with the charades? If you don’t know, the PCR Tests give 75% false positives, but this multi billion dollar NHL and other Sports use it. (I guess they don’t have the best network to this information)

    Have you seen how many people ‘used to’ die from the flu or pneumonia? Interesting how those numbers have almost completely vanished. Those illnesses can’t be listed as Covid illnesses, now??? Hmmmm! That would be corruption and deception. ‘They’ would never do that to us. Shouldn’t they have to quarantine from any illness that causes death, since that is supposed to be why we they quarantine for Covid? I’m confused. Violate HIPPA laws for Covid, but not for the flu? (Newsflash: they are the same illness, just changed the definition)

    Germ Theory is a hoax! Research the facts. It has been pushed upon us they the corrupt Rockefeller Medical, Pharmecutical, Public school systems. We are germs. Germs do not cause illness. Fact. Never could successfully prove it. Stood up in court. Research.

    Start using your minds. Turn off the tv and stop living in TVLand.
