NASHVILLE - Center Marcus Johansson will return to the lineup for the Washington Capitals against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday.

Johansson missed four games with an upper-body injury and is looking forward to getting back on the ice.

"I think people think that it's kind of a little vacation when you get hurt, but it's not," Johansson said. "It's 10 times worse than playing. You're out there skating by yourself, and you're in the gym trying to get better. It's a lot worse than people think. You do everything you can to get back."
