  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Pots goal Tuesday

    Sgarbossa tallied a goal and added four shots during Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Devils.

    Sgarbossa tallied his first goal and second point in seven games since his recall to fill the void left by Evgeny Kuznetsov (personal). The 31-year-old Sgarbossa could get challenged for ice time by some of the younger talent in AHL Hershey and therefore has limited upside as a fantasy play.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Recalled Wednesday
