Practice: Feb. 8

The Washington Capitals were on ice Wednesday morning for a practice following their 4-0 win over the Panthers Tuesday.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Mike Green skated before practice for the second day in a row as he continues to make his way back from sports hernia surgery late last month.

The only healthy Capitals absent from the skate were Dennis Wideman, Alex Ovechkin, and Brooks Laich, who were all given maintenance days by the Washington coaching staff.  The lines were as such: Johansson-Brouwer, Hendricks-Halpern-Ward, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, and Knuble-Aucoin-Beagle.

Nicklas Backstrom, once again, was nowhere to be seen.  He has skated once since the fifth day of January and is likely eons away from returning, if he does at all this season.

That’s all for now.
