The Washington Capitals were on ice for practice Monday morning as they prepare to take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
The entire team, except Mike Green, was present for the skate. This included Jay Beagle, who is working his way back from a concussion, and Matt Hendricks, who missed most of last week with a knee injury. The fact that Green missed another practice, and has now not skated for four days in a row, officially indicates that he has had a setback in my book, regardless of what Dale Hunter or the team feels like revealing.
The lines remained the same as they were Friday night: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Brouwer-Johansson-Halpern, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Hendricks-Eakin-Knuble-Perreault. Poor Knuble, someone get him out of the dungeons. Please.
That’s all for now.
