Theodore starting, Green limping, Backstrom preparing
Jose Theodore will start in goal for the Caps tonight against Columbus. But that's about all Coach Bruce Boudreau was willing to share with reporters when he spoke moments ago.
I can tell you that I saw Mike Green limp into Verizon Center. He missed practice yesterday after taking a shot off the leg Friday, and when I asked him if he could play, he said only, "Don't know yet." Boudreau said he needed to talk to Green before deciding whether the defenseman will play.
Nicklas Backstrom, who missed practice yesterday with an undisclosed illness, was preparing as if he'll play. But Boudreau stopped short of guaranteeing that the center will be in the lineup.
I'll post lines and pairings after warmups. Things should be a lot clearer then.
