Missing from practice Saturday was Evgeny Kuznetsov. Coach Reirden told reporters that he sent Kuzy home rather than have him skate. All hope is that he will rest up and come back strong when the Caps meet the Flyers on Sunday. Kuznetsov has upped his game and is a key component for a Capitals victory, which has alluded them the past two games. For now the Caps are planning to make some line adjustments in case he can’t bounce back for the matinee game.
