He was a healthy scratch for Friday's contest against the Blues. However, given the lack of effort by his teammates in that contest, Upshall and Ryan Whitney, who has not played since October the 10th, may get the chance to suit up in the Nation's capital. That said, neither has any fantasy value.

Gudas smashed his stick against the top of the bench area in response and he was kicked out of the game as a result. Upshall received an unsportsmanlike penalty on the play. "He overreacted a bit. He's a guy who plays a bit on the edge. He plays hard and he was fired up, took a run at our guy by the bench and fell," said Upshall. "I think he was embarrassed he fell. You would think it was the end of the world. He was freaked out." Upshall also contributed one assist and five hits in the match.
