That gives the Capitals forward four helpers in his first two games of the playoffs this season. Johansson had 16 goals and 48 points in the regular season so this mini-streak bodes well for every poolie who took him in their playoff pools.

Marcus Johansson snapped his personal seven-game goal drought in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Chicago.

Feb 28 - 4:04 PM

Marcus Johansson took line rushes on the fourth line during the pregame warm-ups.

It looks like he will indeed return from an illness on Wednesday night, but he may not start on his regular line. Mike Richards appears to be staying on the third unit for now after he scored the game winner on Monday night.
Feb 24 - 6:50 PM

Marcus Johansson will probably play on Wednesday, according to coach Barry Trotz.

Trotz thought Johansson was probable to play on Monday too, but he ended up sitting out that game. Still, it's probably safe to activate him if you normally would.
Feb 24 - 5:23 PM

Marcus Johansson (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Montreal.

He didn't practice on Tuesday after he sat out Monday's match because of the flu bug. "We sent him home after he came today," coach Barry Trotz said. "We'll see where he is tomorrow. He'll probably skate, and then we'll make that decision tomorrow."
Feb 23 - 5:34 PM

Marcus Johansson (illness) isn't on for the pregame warm-up.

He didn't skate in the morning either and it doesn't seem likely that he will play against Arizona. Johansson was listed as probable to play, but that doesn't appear as though that will be the case.
Feb 22 - 6:38 PM

Marcus Johansson didn't skate Monday morning because of an illness, but he is probable to play against Arizona.

"We kept him at home," coach Barry Trotz said. "We'll see. We expect him to show up tonight and be ready to go. He just felt a little under the weather this morning. We gave him some meds. We'll see how he is later today." If Johansson isn't able to play, Mike Richards will skate on the third line in his place. We'll keep Johansson active for now.
Feb 22 - 4:00 PM

Marcus Johansson scored a goal and two assists in Washington's 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators.

This was his first game back in the lineup after he missed the last four contests with an upper-body injury. Johansson picked up the primary assist on Tom Wilson's second period goal. He added a goal of his own in the third period to give Washington a 4-1 lead, and he assisted on Alex Ovechkin's empty net goal. The 25-year-old has 14 goals and 33 points in 45 games this season.

Marcus Johansson (upper body) will get back into the lineup on Tuesday night.

He missed four games with an upper-body injury. Johansson has registered eight points in his last eight games. He will return to centering the third line and he could see time on the top power-play unit after he practiced there in the morning.
Feb 9 - 3:18 PM

Look for Marcus Johansson (upper body) to rejoin the Capitals this week.

Johansson was injured just before the All-Star break and has missed the last couple of weeks. He should be on the third line as Andre Burakovsky has replaced him on the second unit. Johansson will line up with Jason Chimera and Tom Wilson to give the Capitals yet another line capable of scoring. He has 13 goals and 30 points in 44 games with a plus-16 rating.
Feb 9 - 11:05 AM

Marcus Johansson, Stanislav Galiev, and Connor Carrick will each be scratched from Sunday's matinee with Philadelphia.

Johansson is still dealing with an upper body injury, while Galiev and Carrick have combined for just 17 games played this season. Galiev has 14 of those games, and he's been with the team all season.
