Andre Burakovsky took a costly and unnecessary penalty in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.

Washington's third line had a great shift in the attacking zone, but it ended when Burakovsky was whistled for boarding Vegas forward Cody Eakin. The Golden Knights opened the scoring with a power-play goal by Colin Miller. Burakovsky got some redemption when he assisted on Brett Connolly's goal to tie the game at 1-1 later in the opening period. Both teams only got one penalty apiece in the first game of the series.

Andre Burakovsky is projected to stay on the third line for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

That shouldn't come as a surprise after Burakovsky came up big in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay with a two-goal performance. He has skated alongside Lars Eller and Brett Connolly for Washington's last two practices.
May 27 - 5:02 PM

Andre Burakovsky scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Alex Ovechkin opened the scoring just 1:02 into the first period, but it was Burakovsky's two second-period goals that put the game to bed, as he gave his team 2-0 and 3-0 leads in the middle frame. He finished the night with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal in 11:19 of ice time. This was an impressive performance from a player that was a healthy scratch in Game 5 of the series. The two goals were his first points of the 2018 playoffs. The Capitals will now head to Vegas to take on the Golden Knights in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night. It's the first time the Caps will be in the final since 1998.
May 23 - 10:59 PM

Andre Burakovsky will be back in the lineup for Game 6 versus Tampa Bay.

Burakovsky was on the third line alongside Lars Eller and Brett Connolly during Monday's morning skate. He was a healthy scratch Saturday, but Alex Chiasson will be in the press box for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.
May 21 - 2:04 PM

Andre Burakovsky will not play in Game 5 Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Burakovsky will make way for Alex Chiasson. Burakovsky will join Madison Bowey, Jakub Jerabek, Shane Gersich, Travis Boyd, Nathan Walker and Pheonix Copley as scratches.
May 19 - 6:57 PM

Andre Burakovsky appears to be the odd man out based on Saturday's morning skate.

Alex Chiasson took part in line rushes and Burakovsky did not. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Burakovsky has logged just 7:26 and 8:30 in each of Washington's last two games. The Capitals jumped out to a 2-0 series lead on the road but lost the next two at home. Tonight's game would go a long way in giving them the confidence needed to make a Stanley Cup Final berth.
May 19 - 12:08 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) will play in Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

Burakovsky hasn't been available since Game 3 of Washington's first-round series against Columbus. He's skating on a line with Chanler Stephenson and Brett Connolly. The 23-year-old has no points in two games this postseason.
May 11 - 7:47 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) was on the third line during Friday's practice.

Burakovsky also practiced on the Capitals' second power-play unit. Officially, he's a game-time decision for Game 1, but it looks like he will be returning. His projected linemates are Chandler Stephenson and Brett Connolly.
May 11 - 1:12 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) took part in Thursday's optional practice.

Burakovsky wasn't wearing a non-contact jersey, which is a step up for him, though because it was an optional practice, there wasn't much contact anyways. Burakovsky was recently upgraded from week-to-week to day-to-day by Capitals coach Barry Trotz.
May 10 - 4:27 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) is regarded as day-to-day at this point, per Capitals coach Barry Trotz.

Burakovsky had previously been listed as week-to-week. It's not clear if Burakovsky has a real chance of playing in the Capitals' series opener against Tampa Bay, but he will travel with his teammates ahead of Game 1.
May 9 - 5:05 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) won't travel with the team to Pittsburgh ahead of Game 6 on Monday night.

Burakovsky has already missed nine games due to an upper-body injury and he is expected to be out for Monday's contest as well. The good news is that he recently started skating again, but a timetable for his return remains uncertain.
May 6 - 3:12 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) went through a conditioning skate on Friday.

That marks Burakovsky's return to the ice. He didn't engage in any work with the puck and he's still week-to-week, but at least it's a sign of progress. It sounds like it would be wishful thinking to hope he'd return before the end of the second round, but if the Capitals advance beyond that series then perhaps Burakovsky will eventually be an option.
May 4 - 12:40 PM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) will not travel with the team to Pittsburgh ahead of Game 3 on Tuesday night.

Burakovksy has been sidelined since Apr. 15 due to an upper-body injury. It's unclear if he will be back at any point for Washington's second-round playoff series against Pittsburgh.
Apr 30 - 11:12 AM

Andre Burakovsky (upper body) is listed as week-to-week, according to coach Barry Trotz.

Trotz isn't sure if Burakovsky will be available to play in Round 2 against Pittsburgh. The Capitals forward was injured in Game 2 against Columbus and he had to undergo a minor surgery for the upper-body ailment. Burakovsky is expected to resume skating soon.
