  • Kuznetsov (not injury related) had one shot and one hit in Wednesday's 3-2 double-overtime loss to Boston in Game 3. The 28-year-old center was back from a seven-game absence but generated little of note despite logging more than 26 minutes of ice time. Kuznetsov may have needed a game to knock off the rust and find his legs after a lengthy layoff, but he's now produced just three goals in his last 18 games dating back to late March. The Capitals will need him to find his game quickly if they're going to stay in this series.

  • Kuznetsov (not injujry related) is on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Game 3 against Boston and will play Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Lars Eller is out with a lower-body injury, but it looks like the Capitals will get Kuznetsov back after seven missed games. He's taking line rushes in the No. 1 center slot between Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie. The Russian has 62 points -- including 24 on the power play -- in 78 career postseason contests.

  • Kuznetsov (not injury related) has been cleared to play, but his availability for Wednesday's Game 3 has yet to be determined, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Head coach Peter Laviolette notes that it's merely a matter of conditioning that stands in the way of Kuznetsov's return to the lineup. The 29-year-old has not played since May 1 and with Lars Eller (lower body) nicked up in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss in Game 2, the Capitals desperately need another offensive heavyweight at their disposal -- especially at the center position. Check back for updates prior to Wednesday's puck drop, but it does not appear as though the 26th overall pick from the 2010 NHL Entry Draft will need to wait much longer to return to action.

  • Kuznetsov (not injury related) will travel with the team for Wednesday's Game 3 in Boston, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Kuznetsov has been skating with the team since Sunday, so there's a chance he'll be ready to play in Game 3 after missing the first two matches of the series due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. The 28-year-old pivot picked up 29 points through 41 contests during the regular season.

  • Kuznetsov (COVID-19) will not be in Monday's Game 2 lineup against the Bruins, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports. As expected, Kuznetsov is still unavailable and hasn't played since May 1. The 28-year-old forward was back at practice Sunday, so there's a good chance that he'll be ready to go for Game 3 on Wednesday. He scored 29 points with a plus-7 rating in 41 games this season.
