In this photo taken Jan. 23. 2017, Washington Capitals left wing Andre Burakovsky (65), of Austria, skates with the puck during the third period of an NHL hockey game against the Carolina Hurricanes in Washington. If there was ever a good time for the Washington Capitals to go through an injury, it’s now. That’s no knock on Burakovsky, who was a point-a-game player the last 14 games before a hand injury sidelined him until mid-to-late March. But without the 22-year-old forward, the Capitals get a chance to see what they have in youngsters like Zach Sanford, Jakub Vrana and others in case they encounter more injury adversity in the playoffs.
