Capitals Insider: November 4, 2007 - November 10, 2007

Bourque Sent Down

With Chris Clark set to return to the lineup at Florida on Thursday, the Caps sent Chris Bourque to Hershey after last night's 5-2 loss to the Lightning. Bourque got three games under his belt in his first NHL stint, and he looked okay in the limited minutes he played....

Tonight's Lineup and an Injury Update

Without Chris Clark and Alexander Semin, Coach Glen Hanlon will have to be creative with his lines again tonight against Tampa Bay. Forwards: Ovechkin-Nylander-Laich/Bourque/Bradley Fleischmann-Backstrom-Kozlov Pettinger-Steckel-Gordon Brashear-Laich/Bourque/Bradley Defense: Poti-Green Jurcina-Morrisonn Pothier-Schultz Goaltenders: Kolzig-Johnson Update: Looks like Clark (lacerated left ear) is going to be back soon. Hanlon said tonight that...

Friday Practice Update

I've have to be brief. I've got an online chat starting in three minutes. *Clark skated today and is getting "close" to returning. The captain won't play tomorrow against the Lightning, but next Thursday in Florida is looking like a possibility. *Semin did not skate. So, obviously, he won't be...

"Grobert? Who's Grobert?"

I came across this gem of a quote from -- who else? -- Ovechkin in this morning's Ottawa Sun. Speaking of surly, former NHLer Bob Probert was outside the Caps dressing room after the game. He introduced himself to Ovechkin. The star walked away and asked somebody, "Grobert? Who's Grobert?"...

Scouting Ottawa

Actually, if you've been following the first month of the season, do you really need a scouting report on the Senators? Just in case you haven't, here's all you really need to know about tonight's opponent. From the Sun: The Senators weren't patting themselves on the back for having the...

Late Practice Today

The Caps are traveling this morning and are scheduled to practice at 3 p.m. at Scotiabank Place. I'm going to stop in Washington for the night before meeting the team in Ottawa tomorrow morning. But make sure to check back for an update (assuming practice does not get cancelled, though...

Big Lineup Changes in the ATL

Okay, here's what I know about tonight's lineup in Atlanta: *Eminger comes off IR and is in the lineup *Backstrom moves to center *Jurcina, after a rough game last night, is a healthy scratch. *Bourque is here and will dress. *Poti will take the warmup before deciding whether to play....

Bourque Recalled From Hershey

Chris Bourque has been recalled from the Bears and is expected to make his NHL debut tonight in Atlanta, where the Caps are facing a critical game against the Thrashers. They've lost three straight, nine of the past 11 and have scored only two goals over the past 193 minutes....

McPhee: Trade Market Remains Quiet

Before last night's loss, I spoke to GM George McPhee about a lot of things, including whether he's considered making a trade to improve his struggling and injury-plagued team, or just to shake things up. Here's what he had to say on the subject: "You would like to help your...

Godfrey Signs Entry Level Deal

The Capitals announced the signing of 19-year-old prospect Josh Godfrey, their 34th overall pick in June, to a three-year entry level contract. A swift-skating defenseman with a hard shot, Godfrey led all Ontario Hockey League defensemen with 24 goals last season. This season, he ranks third among defensemen in goals...

Poti Likely Out vs. 'Canes.

The Caps probably won't have any of their injured players for tonight's game at Carolina. Alexander Semin (sprained ankle) and Chris Clark (lacerated ear) did not travel with the team, and defenseman Tom Poti (strained groin muscle) doesn't figure to play, either. Poti took the morning skate, but stayed out...

Sunday Morning at KCI

Chris Clark and Tom Poti are both on the ice for practice; Alexander Semin is not. Clark, though, is not assigned to a forward line. Both the Captain and Poti, so far, are participating fully, so I guess it's possible they could play at some point on the upcoming road...
