Capitals Insider: April 1, 2007 - April 7, 2007

Semin Expected to Play

Good crowd out at KCI today. I would say about 200 or so folks showed up for the Caps' final practice of the season. Those fans didn't get to see Alexander Semin skate -- he's still got a sore foot and a bit of a cold -- but he is...

Ovechkin Has Been "Sensational"

Everyone was anxious to see how Alex Ovechkin would rebound from his blowup in Tampa. Well, we've got our answer. I feel weird saying this about a player who's got 46 goals, but, in my opinion, the past two games have been among Ovechkin's best this season. And that's not...

Steckel Up, Schultz Down

I was just informed that center Dave Steckel has been recalled from Hershey and defenseman Jeff Schultz has been re-assigned to the Bears. Steckel was called up to fill in tonight for Alexander Semin, who didn't make the trip to Atlanta after suffering a foot injury in the second period...

Semin Day-to-Day

Alexander Semin left tonight's game late in the second period with what a team official called a "sore foot." The left wing did not return to the game and is questionable for tomorrow's contest in Atlanta. I did not see Semin get hurt and he wasn't around when the dressng...

Kolzig Nominated for Masterton

I forgot to mention yesterday that the Washington Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association has nominated goaltender Olie Kolzig for the 2007 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is given each year to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. If you've...

What happened in Tampa, stayed in Tampa.

Or so the Caps said today, about 48 hours removed from Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Lightning, which led to a players only meeting and all-star Alex Ovechkin smashing a stick and an iPod on his way out of St. Pete Times Forum. After a previously scheduled day off yesterday,...

Ovechkin, Caps Off Today

Unfortunately, the Caps are off today, and I'm traveling, so I'm doubting there will be much fallout to report today. If you don't know what I'm talking about read my game story from last night's game here. If I hear anything, I'll post something later....
