Practice: Dec. 29

The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Thursday morning as they prepare to meet the Sabres Friday night at Verizon Center.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

The lines were the same as they were for Wednesday night’s win over the Rangers: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Ward-Laich-Chimera, Johansson-Halpern-Brouwer, and Knuble-Hendricks-Beagle-Perreault.

Mike Green also took his third consecutive full practice as he recovers from a groin injury, taking full rushes with his fellow defensemen and not looking like he was hesitating very much at all.  After skating, green said that he could be back this weekend but a more realistic timeline would be next week, ideally Tuesday against Calgary.

That’s all for now.
