Backstrom Says He's Better; Team Being Cautious (Updated)

Three days after spraining his ankle during an on-ice training session, center Nicklas Backstrom says he's doing much better. "I can walk," he said with a smile. "I will be okay." Backstrom was still limping noticeably, however, and did not skate. But he was able to ride a stationary bike...

Backstrom Sprains Ankle

Nicklas Backstrom suffered a sprained ankle yesterday when he collided with the goal, General Manager George McPhee confirmed moments ago. Backstrom stayed down for a few seconds, then skated off the rink gingerly. Backstrom was seen walking with a pretty pronounced limp later in the day and he didn't skate...

Ovechkin Is In The House (Updated)

The reigning league MVP is on the ice at Kettler for this morning's informal skate, which, perhaps not so coincidentally, is being conducted at a much higher tempo than previous sessions. The bottom of his skates, by the way, are red and blue. With the yellow laces, there's a lot...

Nylander: "It's A Good Situation" (Updated)

Michael Nylander is back - and he's not planning on going anywhere. The veteran center confirmed moments ago that his Potomac home was put on the market, but he also was quick to say the sale has nothing to do with his status with the Caps. In fact, he said,...

Nylander On The Ice At Kettler

Just thought you would like to know that Micheal Nylander is on the ice this morning at Kettler, joining 12 of his teammates for an informal practice. Jeff Schultz is also here. Hopefully, I'll have an update on Nylander later today....

A Full(er) House At Kettler (Updated)

Just got back from my NASCAR assignment and figured I would wander over to Kettler to see who's on the ice. And to my surprise, about half the team is out there today, including: Brent Johnson, Jose Theodore, Karl Alzner, Brooks Laich, Boyd Gordon, Nicklas Backstrom (who appears to have...
