The Washington Capitals were on ice for practice Friday morning as they prepare to try and actually win a hockey game Saturday night against the Senators. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Mike Green, once again, skated for about 30 minutes before regular practice with strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish. Green left the ice when his teammates began to do drills, and there is still no timetable on his potential return to game action.
The lines were a bit different from last night, with Mike Knuble finally moving off the fourth line to skate with Marcus Johansson and Alexander Semin on the second unit. The other three lines stayed the same: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Halpern.
Roman Hamrlik was also absent from the skate with what is being called another lower body “day-to-day” injury. Maybe a not so healthy scratch, after all. Not that I’m complaining…
That’s all for now.
