The Washington Capitals will have three goaltenders as they ship on up to Boston for game one of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Boston Bruins on Thursday. According to a tweet by 106.7 The Fan Capitals beat reporter Sky Kerstein, goaltender Michael Neuvirth will make the trip with the team, while Tomas Vokoun will not.

Goaltender Braden Holtby is slated to start game one for the Capitals with Dany Sabourin backing him up.

In other injury news, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will not play in game one according to a tweet by John Bishop on the the Bruins official twitter page.
