Evgeny Kuznetsov “Day-To-Day” With Upper-Body Injury

The Washington Capitals are terming Evgeny Kuznetsov as day-to-day with an upper-body injury. The Washington Capitals came away with a key road win in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final. The victory did come with a price. The Capitals lost The postseason’s leading scorer, Evgeny Kuznetsov,  early after he was the recipient of a hip check into the boards from Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb.

Kuznetsov’s status is day-to-day. Caps fans did get some encouraging news, on Friday, Kuznetsov joined teammates for the optional practice.

 

 

 

By the way, I would bet my left wrist that Kuznetsov will be cleared tomorrow and available for Game 3.

It’s not known if Kuznetsov will play in Game 3, but the fact that he was up to joining the Capitals for their skate is a great sign
