The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday for a practice as they prepare to take on the Calgary Flames Tuesday night at Verizon Center. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Alexander Semin was absent from practice, as he was given a “maintenance day.” Despite this, Dale Hunter would not commit to Semin playing against the Flames tomorrow. In addition, according to a Caps spokesperson, Semin is not suffering from a cut on his arm, despite reports otherwise this morning.
As such, the lines were as follows: Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Johansson-Backstrom-Knuble, Chimera-Halpern-Ward, and Perreault-Hendricks-Beagle. Mike Green, who skated for a full practice again Monday, is still progressing and could play tomorrow. He said that this is the best he’s felt since suffering his injury over 50 days ago and a determination on his status would be made after the morning skate.
That’s all for now.
