The Capitals were on ice for practice today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex as they prepare for tomorrow's game with the cellar-dwelling Senators. Some personnel updates from the skate:
Eric Fehr is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury that he sustained in last night's loss to the Canucks. Bruce Boudreau would not elaborate on the exact nature of the injury but Fehr does have his arm in a sling. Andrew Gordon has been recalled from Hershey of the AHL to help the void left by 16.
The other injured players who did not skate today were Alex Semin and Tom Poti. Semin may play in Philly in Tuesday, but there is no timetable for Poti's return. They are battling thigh and undisclosed injuries, respectively.
The Caps take on Ottawa tomorrow at 7. More for that game in the morning.
Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!
