The Washington Capitals returned to the ice Monday morning for their second training camp practice under new head coach Adam Oates.  Some news and notes from Kettler: First off, defenseman Tom Poti was hot on the comeback trail Sunday night, scoring a power play goal for the Hershey Bears in his first competitive game in two years.  Poti will play again Wednesday night if he feels good and could be back by the end of the week. The Caps' forward lines remained unchanged, so they went like this: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Johansson, Wolski-Ribeiro-Brouwer, Chimera-Beagle-Ward/Wilson, and Hendricks-Perreault-Crabb/Fehr.  The injured Brooks Laich skated before practice, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post, but is still not ready to join the team.  On defense, the top two pairs of Carlson-Alzner and Green-Hamrlik were unchanged, but Jeff Schultz was bumped to the scratch line with Cam Schillng, while Jack Hillen skated with John Erskine.  That's not good! That's all for now. Harry Hawkings is a college student credentialed to cover the Capitals for RtR.  Follow him on Twitter here for all your news needs this season.
