Eric Fehr will miss Tuesday night’s game against the New York Islanders and is being called day-to-day by the Washington Capitals with an upper-body injury.
Coach Adam Oates said Monday that Fehr’s injury was not to either of his shoulders. Fehr has had three shoulder surgeries, so that appeared to be good news.
Wojtek Wolski was expected to replace Fehr in the lineup. Wolski was a healthy scratch for seven games in a row and eight of the past nine.
Aside from Wolski for Fehr, the Caps will feature the same lineup from Sunday night’s shootout victory at the New York Rangers. That means Braden Holtby will make his sixth straight start in goal.
