The mood on the ice at MedStar Capitals Iceplex was still lighthearted and yet focused.

Joining the workout on Monday for the first time were Dmitry Orlov, Michal Kempny, Madison Bowey, and TJ Oshie. Missing for a second day was Lars Eller.
Goaltenders in the nets were Braden Holtby, Pheonix Copley, and Vitek Vanecek.
Holtby was taking it all in:
We think Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom are already working on a strategy for the first win.
the defensemen were in the thick of it, with D-Whisperer Brooks Orpik. And well, John Carlson was just pleased about the whole thing!
All and all, the players were going through the paces as if they were preparing for a game that night. We aren’t seeing any signs of a hangover with these boys!
