Andre Burakovsky scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

This was his first game back in the lineup since being a healthy scratch in three consecutive games and he responded in a big way. He opened the scoring late in the first period and he helped set up Lars Eller's go-ahead goal in the second. The 21-year-old has three goals and nine assists in 28 games. Last season, he got off to a similarly slow start, but managed to get hot in the second half of the year. He's someone to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues.

There's some good news for Washington after all, as Andre Burakovsky practiced on Saturday morning after not playing in the final two periods against Detroit.

Washington lost TJ Oshie (week-to-week) and Lars Eller (day-to-day) to upper body injuries in the same game, so Burakovsky's presence on the ice is an uplifting sight. The youngster has two goals and seven points in 17 games this season, and could be in line to see a jolt in his 14:47 average ice time.

Andre Burakovsky is expected to play with Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov on Wednesday night.

T.J. Oshie has been shifted to Burakovsky's former line with Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson. "I just want to get a few guys going," coach Barry Trotz said. "I think I can balance them out a little bit, just moving them around. We need to get more from all our lines, so you move one piece at a time and see what the common denominator is. It's not an indictment on anybody. I just think we can get more out of our lines, so we can keep doing the same thing, or we can try to make adjustments, so let's find out now."

Andre Burakovsky scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Burakovsky opened the scoring just 59 seconds into the game, when he beat Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury five-hole. With the Caps trailing 2-1 in the third period, Burakovsky came through again. Surprisingly, the 21-year-old wasn't selected to take one of Washington's three shootout attempts in the game. Burakovsky scored 17 goals and 38 points last season and it wouldn't be shocking to see him surpass those numbers this season.

Andre Burakovsky is hoping that the 2015-16 season was a good learning experience.

"Sometimes, it's good to have those ups and downs," Burakovsky said. "It's good to have, so you learn how to get out of them real quick because everyone's going to have downs. It's just reality. It's just how it is. But the thing you want to learn and thing you want to do is get rid of them quick. I think my down was maybe 10, 15 games, and that's something you have to get rid of quick. That's something I've been working on this year, and I think it helped to have a little bit of a down." After a sluggish start, Burakovsky exploded for 29 of his 38 points in the last 45 games of the regular season.
