Andre Burakovsky and Michael Latta will be scratched for Game Two against the New York Islanders on Friday night.
While Latta contributed just a single hit to the score sheet during his 5:16 of ice time in Game One on Wednesday night, Burakovsky has yet to see NHL playoff ice. That may change depending upon how Game Two goes, but neither seem to be worthy additions to your daily lineup either way. Apr 17 - 6:45 PM

Andre Burakovsky will be held out of Game 1’s lineup Wednesday night versus the Islanders.

The 20-year-old rookie played in 53 games with the Capitals this season scoring nine goals and 22 points with a plus 12 rating, which is very impressive considering his age. But with Jay Beagle and Eric Fehr both returning to the lineup for Game 1, Burakovsky will be the odd man out. It looks like the 2015 playoffs will be more of a learning experience for the youngster.

Do not be surprised if Andre Burakovsky is sent to the minors after Saturday's game.

Andre Burakovsky is skating on Washington's first line with Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson on Thursday.

Mar 2 - 3:54 PM

Andre Burakovsky will be back in the Caps lineup Wednesday night versus Pittsburgh.

After being a healthy scratch in Sunday’s loss to the Flyers, head coach Barry Trotz will insert the 20-year-old back onto the Caps top line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. Burakovsky has skated in 45 games this season, posting nine goals and 12 assists with a plus 12 rating. But what’s more telling is the fact that the Capitals are 7-0-0 in their last seven games when he’s in the lineup and 0-4-1 when he’s a healthy scratch. Time will tell if Trotz will keep him in the lineup more regularly but based on those records, it’d be foolish to leave him out.
