Washington Capitals left wing Randy Burridge, who was expected to be out until January because of surgery on his left knee, is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee tomorrow. The new procedure isn't expected to delay his return.
He injured the left knee in Game 2 of the playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He hurt the right knee Sept. 5. Team doctor Richard Grossman will perform the arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
Meanwhile, the Capitals announced yesterday that their season-opening game against the Maple Leafs in Toronto has been moved from Oct. 7 to Oct. 6.
The Maple Leafs requested the switch because of scheduling conflicts.
The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Channel 20 and WMAL (630 AM).
