Already without captain Chris Clark (sprained shoulder) and starting goaltender Olie Kolzig (sprained knee), the Caps found out today that they are going to be without left wing Matt Pettinger for four to six weeks because of a broken thumb, and center Boyd Gordon for two weeks due to a sore knee.
Pettinger and Gordon were injured in the third period of Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to Tampa. Pettinger was hurt when he blocked Dan Boyle's power play slap shot from the point. It's unclear how Gordon was hurt.
General Manager George McPhee just told me that he's planning to recall forward Alexandre Giroux from Hershey.
I'll have more in tomorrow's paper.
