      Tom Wilson will not play the next game but is very close to returning (ACL)

      Wilson has yet to play in 2022-23 due to off-season ACL surgery but is very close to returning as he is skating with the Capitals at practice. The 28-year-old has 115 goals, 158 assists, and 1211 PIMs through 647 career NHL games played and will make an immediate physical impact upon his long-awaited return to the lineup.

      Wilson (lower-body) will be a game-time decision for Game 2.

      Wilson played just 1:31 TOI in Game 1 before departing with a lower-body injury. The Capitals did not provide much of an update on his status but called him a game-time decision for Game 2, which suggests his injury isn't overly serious. Connor McMichael or Axel Jonsson-Fjallby will likely draw to replace Wilson if he can't play.

      Wilson missed Sunday's game vs. the Sabres but was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate and will be a game-time decision tonight. Wilson, who has three goals and three assists (six points) in five games this season, will skate on a line with Lars Eller and Richard Panik if he plays.

      Wilson (lower-body) is day-to-day and questionable to play Sunday.

      Wilson left Friday's game vs. the Sabres with a lower-body injury and did not practice on Saturday. Head coach Peter Laviolette listed him as questionable, so monitor his status when the Capitals hit the ice for warmups at 2:30 PM ET. If he can't play, expect the Capitals to go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

      Wilson (lower-body) was a full participant in Monday's practice; likely to play on Tuesday.

      Wilson was a late-scratch in Carolina on Saturday but was back on the top line in Monday's practice and should play against the Islanders on Tuesday. Wilson has been stuffing categories lately, posting six points (1G / 5A) with 10 shots and 32 PIMS in his last seven games.
