Former Tiger Jack Hillen is playing right now against the Bruins after being injured in the Capitals’ season opener. His Caps teammate Joey Crabb scored earlier this week.
Brian Connelly moved into the power play quarterback role and scored twice Thursday for the AHL Houston Aeros. He replaced former North Dakota standout Chay Genoway, who was traded to the Capitals by the Wild, in that role.
Mike Testwuide scored the only Abbotsford goal in the 4-1 loss.
Testwuide was suspended for three games for charging in a game on March 13. The charging incident resulted in a goalie interference call that knocked the Texas starter out of the game.
The former CC captain drew a fight (video) from the Stars enforcer on his next shift following the penalty.
