Some quick hits from today's morning skate at Consol Energy Center, with much more to come:
*The Capitals' lines were the same as last week, with Tom Poti, who has missed the last two games after suffering a concussion Dec. 23 against Pittsburgh, out tonight against the Penguins.
*Semyon Varlamov was the first goalie off the ice, and the likely starter tonight at Heinz Field.
*For the Penguins, Jordan Staal, who has been out with foot and hand injuries, will make his season debut tonight at Heinz Field.
