Capitals’ T.J. Oshie, John Carlson Leave Saturday’s Game Vs. Predators With Lower-Body Injuries; Doubtful To Return

Washington Capitals right wing T.J. Oshie and defenseman John Carlson left Saturday’s game against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena due to lower-body injuries in the first period and are doubtful to return.

During a power play early in the first period, Oshie appeared to pull something while chasing the puck and a nearing Predators’ breakaway. He then went down the Capitals’ tunnel with some help.

Midway through, Carlson left due to an awkward fall in the defensive zone. He played a seven-second shift afterward, but that would be it.

The Capitals announced during the first intermission that Oshie and Carlson sustained lower-body injuries and were considered doubtful to return for the remaining forty minutes of play.

Both were not on the bench for the start of the second period.
