The Washington Capitals race line is set for the opening of the 2020-21 season against the Buffalo Sabers on Thursday night.
The most noticeable change made by head coach Peter Laviolette in the Capitals’ morning skating was to put Conor Sheary back into the third line for Daniel Sprong.

Laviolette confirmed after the skate that Ilya Samsonov would get a head start.
Ilya Samsonov was the first goalkeeper from the ice. Punch a quick punch with Scott Murray and chat with Peter Laviolette before he leaves. https://t.co/d8rwKJiEL7
