Chris Bourque was demoted after the game. This probably means Donald Brashear is expected to be ready by Tuesday, unless the Caps are trying to save some money. Bourque logged 11:25 of ice time and had two shots on net.
“I like him,” Bruce Boudreau said after the game. “He was fiesty. He had a couple of chances and he didn’t heard himself in his own end. He was playing against some pretty big players out there in [David] Clarkson, [Bobby] Holik and [Michael] Rupp. I thought he handled himself well.”
