Semin Injured

Winger Alexander Semin suffered an undisclosed injury and did not return for the third period tonight against the Devils. A team spokesman would only say that he is day-to-day.

I hope to get more after the game.

Bears update:
Hershey won 3-2 at Philly tonight. Varlamov in goal. Bears goals by Bouchard, Mink and Bourque.

...and I hope Semin is ok.

Good thing Ovie is scoring again. Time for Fehr and Flash to step it up.

Please don't say ankle...I think this team has more depth than the past and could handle a Semin injury a little better than last year. Though last year the team got better as Semin got healthier.

Federov and Morrison will be back soon, so losing Semin for a short time should not be that bad. I hope Semin is not hurt bad at all, and can play tomorrow, however.

He grabbed his mouth late in period 2 like he received a high stick. Then he kept playing, so I instantly thought he was acting to get a penalty.

I did notice that high stick thing.. didn't see him a whole bunch after that. Hopefully it's just a flesh wound or something.

If that's a bad ice injury, I'm gonna give Abe a dope slap.

Not a bad game, but NJ has a way of keeping in the games and making them close. I thought the Caps outplayed NJ just about the whole game except for that brain cramp of a defensive line change.

Sloan seems to be doing pretty darn good for himself! Making smart, simple plays, nothing fancy. He's going to make it difficult to send him back down. I wouldn't be surprised to see Juice or Mo sitting so he can skate regularly. Especially after that idiotic centering pass in the 3rd. Was that Jurcina's pass across the middle that he flubbed and gave NJ a golden shot?

JT played a good game. He wore some velcro 'cause the puck sometimes hit him and stuck to him. Still had a few big rebounds, but the D was there for him tonight. I guess now that Lambo has his hot wheels it's jump started his motor. He looked better tonight.

Greg S,

I think the shot you're referring to was the one from Schultz. It was a bonehead move for sure. Jurcina had a similar attempt to oust the puck only to have it land on an opponent's stick for a good shot on goal in the last game, the one where he also got his hat trick of penalties. I also wouldn't mind seeing one of those two sit some games so Sloan could play here longer. He's playing smart out there. It still bothers me that for as big as Schultz and Jurcina are, they can't seem to hit anybody on a regular basis. I mean, even last night, Schultz got plastered to the boards by Gionta. What is he, about a foot shorter than Schultz?
