    Advice: Dowd is expected to miss Thursday's match in Tampa Bay and Saturday's road contest versus the Panthers. After that, the Capitals will return home to face the Senators on Monday.

  • Expected to start
    Gibson will be in net for Wednesday's home game against Columbus, according to Alyson Lozoff of Bally Sports West.

    Advice: Gibson has a 12-19-1 record, 3.07 GAA and .900 save percentage in 36 outings in 2023-24. He saved 34 of 37 shots in a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Monday. The Blue Jackets are 8-13-6 on the road, so Gibson should have a solid chance to earn another victory Wednesday. Rotowire.com Today, 11:30 am
