Practice: Dec. 19

The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday morning at 10:30 as they prepare for Tuesday night’s game with the Nashville Predators.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Mike Green skated by himself for about 40 minutes before practice began, and left the ice as soon as the rest of his teammates came on for practice.  Dale Hunter would not provide an update on Green after practice, saying only that he “looked good skating.”  Okay.

Dale Hunter also took a blowtorch to his lines again, rolling the following units: Johansson-Backstrom-Ovechkin, Brouwer-Halpern-Semin, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Knuble-Beagle.  Midway through the skate, a Capitals spokesperson said that Beagle has indeed been cleared for a full practice, including contact.  Players did hit him during practice.

That’s all for now.
