The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Thursday morning at Kettler Capitals Iceplex as they prepare to meet the Devils in Newark Friday night. Some updates from Arlington:
Marcus Johansson took a maintenance day, so the Caps trot out some shiny new lines. They were as follows: Ovechkin-Perreault-Brouwer, Semin-Backstrom-Laich, Chimera-Eakin-Ward, and Hendricks-Halpern-Knuble.
Once again, Mike Green participated fully in practice. His status for Friday’s game is not known at this point, though both he and Bruce Boudreau were optimistic that he would play.
That’s all for now.
