The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Saturday morning following their 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
After a game with new lines, Dale Hunter returned to his old units for this skate. The lines were as follows: Ovechkin-Johansson-Semin, Knuble-Laich-Brouwer, Ward-Halpern-Chimera, and Eakin-Hendricks-Beagle-Perreault.
Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom were nowhere to be seen, again, as they continue to recover from groin and head injuries, respectively. Dale Hunter would not provide an update on either player following practice, and neither has skated in over a week.
Check back later.
