The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday morning as they prepare for a Tuesday night showdown with the Predators in Nashville. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Mike Green did not skate because of another injury to his right leg that he suffered Friday night in New Jersey. Green is listed as day-to-day for now, and will not be with the Caps for the start of their upcoming three game road trip. The defenseman could, however, join the team before their games in Winnipeg or Toronto and play then. Man is made of glass.
As per usual, Bruce Boudreau blew up his lines following Saturday night’s shootout loss. The combinations were as follows: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer, Chimera-Laich-Semin, Eakin-Johansson-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Halpern-Knuble. Presented without comment.
Roman Hamrlik, who suffered an upper body injury over the weekend, said that he is feeling better and hopes that he will be ready to go against Nashville Tuesday.
That’s all for now.
