Dustin16182 03-09-2011 08:15 AM

Who will be starting in net?

RandyHolt 03-09-2011 08:37 AM

You are pushing your luck 442! If you survive this one, I vote save it up for April when we get desperate.

Caps 4-2 Erskine with another goal.

strungout 03-09-2011 08:39 AM

Where is this hard cast **** coming from?

And even if he is...better now than later.

CapsCast 03-09-2011 08:46 AM

With Alex Giroux on the Oilers, this game is Bear on Bear violence. It will make me sad if anyone gets chippy with him.

That would require Giroux to be capable of chippiness in the first place... :sarcasm:

HA, I know. I thought we were doomed for the Tampa Bay game when I botched the GDT thread pre-fix .... I guess we can take a vote after this (assuming the streak continues)

RandyHolt 03-09-2011 09:18 AM

Its a soft full body cast, the twitter was wrong

Like riding the goalie on a run until he has a meltdown, I don't think its a bad thing to give him a night off. In fact, I think its a good thing to let a guy catch his breath on an up note. Get the other G some work because our playoffs have proven one G is not always enough.

From Twitter and the DC MSM crew (Carrera and McNally):

Ovechkin says he is skating with Johansson tonight, and Boudreau will have an update on Backstrom later.

Holtby the only skater at practice, and presumably he is starting tonight.

Fehr says that he is playing tonight.

strungout 03-09-2011 09:56 AM

Appears Beagle is still injured so I suppose Hendricks will play center.

My guess...

Ovie - Mojo - Knuble
Laich - Arnott - Semin
Sturm - Hendricks - Fehr
Chimera - Gordon - Bradley

They won't, but, I'd almost prefer they try

Sturm-Arnott-Semin
Chimera-Laich-Fehr
Hendricks-Gordon-Bradley

Bruce'll be looking for that Laich-Arnott-Semin line chemistry though. He'll be banking on them coming back and not sucking like they did against Florida.

QuadrupleDeke 03-09-2011 10:08 AM

Put all the new guys together!

Ovechkin-Johansson-Semin
Sturm-Arnott-Wideman
Chimera-Hendricks-Fehr
Bradley-Gordon-Knuble

Stick Laich on D.

Commence funtimes!

Drake1588 03-09-2011 10:11 AM

The media says Boudreau is calling the Backstrom cast an attempt to immobilize the thumb... isn't making it sound like this is going to shelve him for weeks or anything. He will skate tomorrow.

Per Boudreau, Neuvirth is going to back up Holtby tonight.

Drake1588 03-09-2011 10:14 AM

kcarrera Katie Carrera | BB on Backstrom's hand/thumb: "It’s only in a cast to protect himself and keep it completely quiet. It can be taken off at any time. "

mrwarden 03-09-2011 10:14 AM

Katie just confirmed the hard cast on twitter but said it can come off at any time and is just precautionary and that they expect it to be 1-2 games.

Funkyalligator 03-09-2011 10:42 AM

Let backstrom's thumb rest....give mojo some top line minutes for experience

strungout 03-09-2011 10:44 AM

Vogel has 21 centering the 3rd line.

So maybe...

Ovie - Mojo - Knuble
Sturm - Arnott - Semin
Chimera - Laich - Fehr
Hendricks - Gordon - Bradley

txpd 03-09-2011 10:46 AM

that sounds like the standard disinformation. yea, the cast is about immobilizing the damaged bone. thats a fact. yes, it can be removed at anytime. thats also a basic fact of life.

what they are avoiding is that he didnt need the cast before the florida game and did not need to miss a game. clearly healing the fracture has taken a step backwards from no face offs, to no soup.

the doctor obviously thinks that immobilizing the thumb and not playing is necessary now.
when somebody didnt think so before.

yea...that makes more sense. move a 4 winger to center and the wing slot open for fehr is a 4 slot. move laich to center and a top 9 wing slot opens which is a better fit.

RandyHolt 03-09-2011 10:51 AM

Power of the people; hockeydonks.com or whatever it is was right. Do we really think someone is going to tell Katie before they let Nick out in public? I dont think they tell her anything of substance. The media has their hands full trying to beat the public at large to news. Without the people, the MSM often figures out little on their own.

It can be removed any day, ha yeah a guy with a sawzall.
