Washington Capitals defenceman Karl Alzner is back in the lineup for Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Alzner was recovering from an upper-body injury and hadn’t played since Game 2 of the Capitals’ first round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Capitals will dress seven defencemen on Monday and forward Paul Carey will be a healthy scratch.

The Penguins also made some roster moves ahead of Game 3. Forwards Carl Hagelin and Patric Hornqvist as well as defenceman Brian Dumoulin are all in the lineup despite being listed as questionable earlier in the day.
