The Washington Capitals were on ice Friday for practice following Thursday night’s 5-2 win over the Flyers are they prepare to welcome the Red Wings to Verizon Center on Friday night. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Jay Beagle missed practice once more and has been downgraded to week-to-week, which all but confirms what many have assumed for the better part of a week: that the fourth liner has a concussion. Every other skater on the roster participated in the skate, but there were no lines, as it was a power play oriented practice.
Michal Neuvirth skated both before and during practice and though he likely will not be ready to back up Tomas Vokoun tomorrow, Bruce Boudreau said he very well may play on next week’s western Canada road swing. Dany Sabourin is still with the team and will back up Vokoun tomorrow if need be.
That’s all for today. Check back later tonight for our game preview.
