Help On The Way?
It looks like Capitals *might* get some help in time for Monday's game in Minnesota.
Mike Green was back on the ice this morning after missing two games with a bruised shoulder and Alexander Semin, who has missed four games with a upper back strain, was assigned to a line with four forwards.
It wasn't all good news for the Caps, though. Sergei Fedorov, who aggravated his sprained ankle in the first period of last night's 7-2 throttling at the hands of the San Jose Sharks, did not practice and Boyd Gordon, Chris Clark and Brooks Laich each came off after about 15 minutes.
Green didn't look anywhere close to 100-percent (I didn't see him take a single shot) and he exited after about 20 minutes. But the fact that he was out there means he's hoping to get back into the lineup. Meantime, Semin appeared to be participating fully, while I would be surprised if Fedorov suits up against the Wild.
Before the departures of Gordon, Clark and Laich, here's the forward lines looked like:
All the 'D' was present and accounted for.
I hope to have an update later, but I've got to scramble to the airport and write a story for the print edition so please be patient today.
