The Capitals were on the ice at Kettler late Sunday morning following a big win over the Sabres on Saturday night (5-1). Everyone was there, at least at the start of practice.
Tom Wilson came out. Skated around a bit. Hit a few pucks at our photographer Brittney. Skated off. Came back and talked to the trainer and left again after about three minutes. Coach said later it was a ‘maintenance thing ‘ for him and he was fine. We aren’t as convinced as he sure looked like something was bothering him. Let hope he is in for practice at Nationwide Arena on Monday.
We had a chance to watch Michal Kempny with John Carlson- a likely pairing for future games.
Moving toward Monday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Trotz said Jakub Jerabek is still on hold pending resolution of a visa issue.
Taylor Chorney is likely to make his debut Monday in a CBJ sweater.
Lines during practice today do not necessarily mean same lines on Monday…
The guys were in visibly good moods today, it was great to see them all smiling.
There are just too many good ones not to share..
