Sorokin will defend the home net in Saturday's game against the Capitals.
Sorokin's last start was a 30-save shutout over the Flyers. He's now 12-4-1 with a .922 save percentage this season. The Capitals typically provide a daunting matchup, as they rank second in the league with 3.43 goals per game. However, they'll take the ice without Alex Ovechkin (lower body) on Saturday.
