Capitals Insider: November 25, 2007 - December 1, 2007

Semin Is Okay (We Think)

Alexander Semin appeared to suffer an injury to his left leg after Carolina defenseman Dennis Seidenberg slashed him in the final seconds. Semin was seen walking around in the locker room, so the injury is not believed to be serious. It's also, obviously, not related to the right ankle sprain...

Clark Out, Semin in, Laing Recalled

Just arrived at RBC Center for the morning skate after a smooth four hour drive from NoVa. Because of the injuries to Chris Clark (groin) and Boyd Gordon (undisclosed), the Caps have recalled winger Quintin Laing from Hershey for some fill-in duty. The 28-year-old has three NHL games on his...

Gordon Sidelined, Too

Okay, here's the latest: Semin is probably going to play tomorrow. Clark's injury is actually a strained groin muscle. He's day-to-day. But here's the one I didn't see coming: checking line center Boyd Gordon is week-to-week with an undisclosed injury. Not sure why the team wouldn't disclose exactly what's wrong...

Thursday Injury Update

Most of the Caps did not practice today (it was optional given the busy schedule). Among the ones who weren't out there were Clark and Semin, who are nursing injuries. Clark didn't finish the third period last night because of an undisclosed injury. He is "iffy" for tomorrow's game at...

Update On Semin and Clark

Just received an update on the status of Semin and Clark, both of whom failed to finish last night's 2-1 shootout loss to the Panthers. Semin tweaked his right ankle in overtime and is listed as day-to-day. I'll get more on his condition at practice tomorrow, which is set for...

Tribute to Taylor

The Capitals will observe a 30-second moment of silence before tonight's game to honor Redskins safety Sean Taylor, I'm told. I also hear that backup goaltender Brent Johnson will wear a Redskins hat on the bench. Update:There was also a classy intro and video tribute to Taylor on the screens...

Tonight's Lineup vs. Florida

Here's the lineup that will face the suddenly streaking Cats, who've won four of five to move within a point of eighth-place New Jersey. (When are the Caps going to go on such a run, you ask? I don't know. But it had better be soon.) Forwards: Ovechkin-Nylander-Clark Pettinger-Kozlov-Semin Laich-Steckel-Gordon...

Tuesday Morning Shakeup

After scoring nine goals in Bruce Boudreau's first two games, both wins, the intermin coach has given the forward lines a bit a shake up after last night's 3-1 loss to Buffalo. The Caps, in case you haven't noticed, have scored two or fewer goals 15 times in 24 games...

The Gift of Gab

There's a good reason for Bruce "Gabby" Boudreau's nickname, as anyone who has attended one of his pre or post-game interview sessions can attest. For a reporter, it's like hitting the lottery. For fans, it's good news, too. (Somebody remind me to stop on the way to the rink tonight...

Up and Running

Good Morning. The technical issues that prevented me from blogging the past two days appear to have been resolved. It's really too bad the outage happened when it did, because there's been so much to talk about the past 48 hours. Oh well, hopefully you've kept up through my game...
