The Washington Capitals were on ice Wednesday morning for a practice as they prepare for a critical four-game road trip, starting at the end of the week, which will make or break their season. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Mike Green, who had been skating apart from his teammates and not participating in practice since his surgery, finally joined the Caps for a workout Wednesday. Green did not take many hits during practice, but did work on the power play, and a decision on his status for the road trip will me made after tomorrow’s practice.
Outside of this very good news on Green, Dale Hunter showcased new practice lines to account for the demotions of Joel Rechlicz and Keith Aucoin. They were as such: Ovechkin-Johansson-Brouwer, Hendricks-Laich-Knuble, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, and Beagle-Halpern-Ward.
That’s all for now.
