Gibson led the Ducks onto the ice for warmups.

Gibson stopped 37 of the 38 shots that he faced in the Ducks win in St. Louis on Saturday. The win snapped an ugly three-game losing streak for Gibson, who is now 2-5-0 with a 2.90 GAA and .913 SV% in seven road starts. The Capitals come into Monday's game having won four of their last six (4-1-1) in Washington while scoring 4.14 goals per game.

"Good possibility" that Grubauer (lower-body) is available for Tuesday's game in Calgary.

Grubauer missed the last five games with a lower-body injury but was at practice on Monday and head coach Jared Bednar thinks both Grubauer and Pavel Francouz will be available on Tuesday. The Avalanche managed to go 4-1-0 without Grubauer.

Thompson is expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks with an upper-body injury.

Thompson was hurt in his season debut on Sunday. He was called-up to replace Kyle Okposo (concussion) but suffered an injury of his own after playing just 6:59 TOI. He was hit awkwardly by Olli Maatta and suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The Sabres have announced that he will miss at least three weeks.

Okposo is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Okposo has had trouble with concussions throughout his career so this is obviously scary news for the 31-year-old winger. Tage Thompson, who was called up to replace Okposo on Sunday, was hurt in that game so the Sabres will likely dig deeper into their farm system for replacements on Tuesday. Given his history with concussions, Okposo could be sidelined long-term.

Terry is expected to be a healthy scratch on Monday.

Terry has been held off of the scoresheet in six straight games and has just four points (2G / 2A) in 21 games this season. This will be the first time in 2019-20 that Terry has served as a healthy scratch. Ondrej Kase will replace him in the lineup.
