Nic Dowd News
Washington Capitals center Nic Dowd had a very unfortunate ending to Martin Luther King Jr. Day, getting hurt on his second shift against the Islanders and exiting the game with a lower-body injury after logging just 57 seconds of ice time. He couldn't carry on after taking a hit from Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck. The team didn't have an immediate update on Dowd after the game. The 32-year-old plays a limited role for the Capitals, but he has done very well as the fourth-line center this season, scoring 10 goals and adding nine assists in 44 games. Lars Eller, who was a healthy scratch versus the Islanders, should assume Dowd's position in the lineup if he can't play against Minnesota on Tuesday.
Washington Capitals center Nic Dowd will miss Thursday's matchup against Columbus for personal reasons. He and his wife have just welcomed their second child to the world and Dowd has stayed behind in Washington to be with his family. Nicolas Aube-Kubel will replace him in the lineup Thursday, while Aliaksei Protas will take over Dowd's duties as the fourth-line center. Dowd is stuck on the fourth line, but that hasn't kept him from getting 10 goals and seven assists in 39 appearances. Alex Ovechkin (28) and Conor Sheary (11) and the only Capitals players with more goals than Dowd this season, so being without him is quite a blow, but he should be back in no time.
Washington Capitals center Nic Dowd returned from a one-game absence and had a big three-point performance in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against Detroit. He scored twice inside 11 seconds in the second period and linked with Marcus Johansson to set Dmitry Orlov up for the game-winning goal with just 22 seconds left in the extra frame. Dowd, who was back from a lower-body injury, become the third player in franchise history to get two goals in an 11-second span. The veteran has been very valuable for the team in a fourth-line role this season, getting seven goals and six assists in 13 appearances. He has also brought plenty of physicality with 74 hits registered.
