Capitals' Laich sidelined with lower-body injury

Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich won't play Friday against the Montreal Canadiens due to a lower-body injury.

Laich, who had played in all 25 games for the Capitals this season, has four goals and two assists. He scored in the Capitals' 6-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

"He had a little tightness the other day [and] he played," coach Adam Oates said. "He felt pretty good [Thursday] morning, and then last night, it was just a little tight. Hopefully, just precautionary and nothing major there."

Jay Beagle will take Laich's place in the lineup.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
