Game Notes

The Capitals will likely be without center Eric Fehr who tied for fourth on the team in goals this season with 19. Head coach Barry Trotz could turn to rookie Andre Burakovsky or Michael Latta to replace Fehr. These teams had split their last ten meetings before game four of this series. The Capitals have taken six of the last ten in this series at home. They lost Game 1 by a score of 4-1 but they bounced back to win Game 2 by a score of 4-3.
