The Washington Capitals were on ice Tuesday morning as they work towards building consistency following another poor showing Monday night against the Panthers. Some updates from BankAtlantic Center:
Matt Hendricks missed practice with an undisclosed lower-body injury. Per a team spokesman, he is day-to-day; he only played 4:22 last night and did not see the ice at all in the third period. As such, Dale Hunter had to shake up his lines: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Brouwer-Johannson-Halpern, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Eakin-Perreault-Knuble.
Roman Hamrlik skated again; he has missed the last three games with a lower body injury. No word on whether or not he will be able to play Wednesday night in Ottawa.
That’s all for now.
