Already playing without the NHL's leading goal-scorer, Alex Ovechkin, the last thing the Washington Capitals need at this point is an injury to another top forward.
Unfortunately that is exactly what they received on Friday night when Mikhail Grabovski had to leave their game in New Jersey after falling in front of the net and awkwardly twisting his leg.
That looked bad.
Grabovski played just six minutes before leaving the game. In 48 games this season he's scored 12 goals (third on the team) to go with 21 assists. With both he and Ovechkin out of the lineup the Capitals' offense has been pretty much nonexistent in New Jersey.
