Eller (personal) left the bubble on Wednesday and will not play on Thursday.
Eller went back to Washington on Wednesday to be with his wife for the birth of their second child. As a result, Eller won't be able to play on Thursday and will need to quarantine upon his return to the bubble, making him questionable for Sunday's game as well. Travis Boyd will replace him in the lineup.

Eller (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Sunday.

Eller (illness) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Eller missed practice on Monday, but was back on the ice for the Capitals morning skate and is now listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s game vs. the Maple Leafs. If Eller is unable to go, Tyler Graovac will draw into the lineup. Eller has two assists in six games this season.
Eller missed Monday's practice because of an illness.
Eller’s status for Tuesday’s game vs. the Maple Leafs is in question after missing Monday’s practice session with an illness.
