Boudreau expects Semin to return next week
Coach Bruce Boudreau said Alexander Semin, who skated in a yellow no-contact jersey at KCI this morning, should return next week. He didn't specifically address the winger's availability for tomorrow's game against the Penguins, but it doesn't sound like Semin will be back in the mix.
"He should be ready next week," Boudreau said. He's "skating better now."
--Tom Poti (lower-body) will likely practice with the team next week but Boudreau said he didn't expect him to play until the Capitals' upcoming West-coast trip. While Eric Fehr (shoulder) still isn't quite ready to take part in the team's practices yet.
--The Capitals are far from the only team dealing with injuries and they won't have to face Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby (concussion) or Evgeni Malkin, who the Penguins just announced has a torn ACL and MCL and will likely require surgery, on Sunday.
More to come.
