Washington Capitals vs Montreal Canadiens Feb.1.2011, 7:30p.m.
Sorry guys this is a revised GDT, because i realize i really screwed up the first one
Big game here post all star break..go get em boys!!
Injury Updates: Washington went into the break with a handful of injured players. Goaltender Michal Neuvirth, defenseman Tyler Sloan and winger Alexander Semin all practiced with the team on Monday while defenseman Tom Poti and right wing Eric Fehr skated on their own before practice.
Neuvirth might be ready to go, and the Caps haven’t decided yet whether they’re recalling Sloan from AHL Hershey – where he had been assigned on a conditioning stint – or not.
Asked whether Semin might be able to play on Monday against Montreal, Boudreau stopped short.
“There’s a chance, I guess,” says the Caps coach. “I don’t know. I’d like to see him, but he will be the determining factor, letting us know if he is okay to play. And he hasn’t done that yet.”
The Caps could certainly use him but if he isn't healthy and definitely ready to go I would think the best thing is to wait and make sure. The last thing they need to do is rush him back before he is ready and have him hurt it worse.
Who's ready for some boring hockey?!
Yeah, I have no doubt this is going to be a snoozer...
7:30 PM start tonight as well as Friday in TB. Will be going to the game tonight, guess I'll have to get a nap in so I don't fall a sleep tonight at the game, my luck they'll have me up on the jumbo tron like they do at baseball games when they catch folks zzzzzzng.
