Dany Sabourin recalled, Varlamov day-to-day

The Capitals recalled goaltender Dany Sabourin from Hershey this afternoon and he took the ice for warm-ups at Verizon Center. It appears when Semyon Varlamov was the first goaltender off the ice this morning it was because of an injury. The team formally lists Varlamov as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. This latest setback comes two games and a week after he missed over three weeks with a groin injury.

During Coach Bruce Boudreau's pre-game comments to the media, when asked if there was any particular reason why Michal Neuvirth would start against Atlanta he said: "No, [Neuvirth] is healthy and Varly played the last two games pretty well so ... change it up."

Also, defenseman Tom Poti did not take part in warm-up for tonight's game against the Thrashers and is listed as day-to-day as well. So it looks like Mike Green will make his return to the lineup.

Let's hope Green can spark the scoring.

that wss something, Ted kinda called out the team saying they were relying on their talent too much, and not playing with enough determination. And he was still edgy about Thaler"s regular season not mattering question.

does Varly work out in the off-season? if he does, i don't think he's doing the right stuff, because one of the principle reasons for working hard away from the ice is to prevent injury...

So disappointing. I was hoping Varly's issues were just some "bad luck" or something but they seem to be perpetual. Get well Varly...we need you!

Varly's injuries come with his style of play. If his conditioning isn't good, or if he hasn't stretched enough....he will get hurt.

I don't think conditioning and stretching are Varly's problems -- from what I've seen at Kettler, he seems to take great care of himself. I think his problem is genetics -- he's very much a muscular "quick twitch" athlete (who plays a quick-twitch goalkeeping style), and such athletes can be injury-prone. Contrast that with Neuvy who, despite being taller, has a wiry build and a smoother approach to goaltending. My fear is that Varly will always be injury-prone. Hopefully Braden Holtby will continue to mature quickly at Hershey and can become the Caps' #2 next year, at which time Varly could be quality trade bait. A 1-2 goalie combination of Neuvy and Holtby would look pretty sharp in net.
