The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday at 12 noon for a practice as they prepare for Tuesday night’s game with the St. Louis Blues with newly minted head coach Dale Hunter. Some updates from a crazy Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Mike Green skated before any of his teammates for about thirty minutes in full pads. There is no word on his availability for Tuesday’s game, but it is likely in significant doubt. There is no timetable on his return to game action, per General Manger George McPhee.
Every other Capitals player besides Jay Beagle was present for the skate; Beagle watched most of the practice in a jumpsuit from the bench. There were no new lines to report, as Hunter spent most of the skate beginning to implement his new systems and such with a game coming up so quickly.
That’s all for now. Check back later for a game preview.
