Gordon Will Be A Game Time Decision

Center Boyd Gordon, who has missed the past three games with back spasms, will be a game-time decision tonight against the Pens. If Gordon does play, it would be a huge boost for the Caps, who are looking to end a three-game losing streak. The penalty kill has been less-than-impressive...

Friday Morning Update

Good morning. Alexander Semin (sparined ankle) skated on his own, but left the ice before his teammates came out. He was able to cut hard, but still looked a bit uncomfortable. So I would say he's at least a week away from returning, if not longer. Everyone else is on...

Lineup Remains the Same

I'm told that center Boyd Gordon (back spams) took the morning skate, but was dressed with the scratches. So it doesn't appear that he's going to play tonight against the Islanders. Alexander Semin (sprained right ankle) skated on his own and appears to be making some progress. He's on IR,...

Schultz Recalled From Hershey

Defenseman Jeff Schultz was recalled from the Bears today and is on the ice practicing. There are 23 players out there, so I'm assuming someone has been put on injured reserve. The only player not on the ice is Alexander Semin, who has missed four games with a sprained right...

Infirmary Update

As I wrote in a previous entry, the Caps did not practice today. In fact, only the players who are nursing injuries reported to KCI, and that was just for treatment. The players' status remains unchanged: Alex Ovechkin (undisclosed), Boyd Gordon (back spasms) and Alexander Semin (right ankle sprain) are...

No Practice Today For Caps

After back-to-back road games, the Caps are taking today off. They'll be back on the ice tomorrow morning at KCI. The thing to keep an eye on this week will be the injuries to Boyd Gordon (back spasms) and Alexander Semin (sprained right ankle). I spoke to Gordon yesterday and...
