Cal Clutterbuck and Thomas Hickey are both out for Tuesday's game against the Capitals with lower-body injuries. Clutterbuck and Hickey both skated on Tuesday morning, but Interim Coach Doug Weight said the team wants to make sure they're 100% healthy before re-inserting them back into the lineup.
"These guys are looking pretty good, feeling pretty good, but just want to make sure we're diligent about it to get them back healthy."
Shane Prince draws back into the lineup for Clutterbuck. Prince skated with Casey Cizikas and Nikolay Kulemin at Monday's practice. Thomas Greiss will start in goal.
