The Washington Capitals were on ice on Wednesday morning as they attempt to regroup following another hammering at the hands of a contender. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Every Cap, except Mike Green, was on the ice and accounted for at the skate. Green is still visiting a groin specialist in Canada, and is expected to join the team on the road. The lines for practice remained the same as they have for most recent games: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Brouwer-Johansson-Halpern, Ward-Laich-Chimera, and Knuble-Perreault-Eakin. Matt Hendricks also took some line rushes with the fourth line; he is still day to day with a knee injury and will travel with the team to Winnipeg. As will Jay Beagle, who is not expected to play but is improving enough to fly and continue skating with his teammates.
That’s all for now. It’s 8 degrees in Winnipeg. Fun.
