Dowd, TVR Suffer Apparent Injuries In Capitals’ Tilt With Hurricanes



Capitals forward Nic Dowd

Just one night after T.J. Oshie got hurt, the Washington Capitals saw two more players go down with injuries as Nic Dowd and Trevor van Riemsdyk appeared to be banged up in the team’s 4-3 shootout win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

With just about seven minutes to go in the opening frame, Dowd was going in for a hit on Brendan Smith and appeared to hurt his shoulder on the play. He left the ice doubled over and stayed on the bench before heading down the tunnel during a media timeout.

Dowd played just 3:37 minutes and won four of five draws before exiting the tilt. He wouldn’t return for the rest of the opening frame but came back for the second period. While he would play in the second, he didn’t play after his first shift of the third period.

Meanwhile, the team would later see Trevor van Riemsdyk exit early. TVR was checked into the Washington bench by Derek Stepan in the third and would head to the dressing room. He did not play in the third or overtime.

It’s unclear what the nature of the injuries are or how severe they are at this time.
