Despite a loss in Game 6, Washington Capitals coach Dale Hunter doesn’t look to be making any lineup changes for Wednesday’s Game 7 at the Boston Bruins.
Lines from practice Tuesday were the same as Game 6, though the pairings got a tweak. Jeff Schultz was skating with Dennis Wideman and John Erskine with Dmitry Orlov. It’s likely that means Schultz is in over Erskine.
Wideman has been on the ice for eight of the Bruins’ 12 even-strength goals in the series.
Mattias Sjogren was the only healthy player on the ice. A team spokesman said Sjogren had an immigration appointment and would meet the team for its flight to Boston Tuesday afternoon.
