The Washington Capitals were on ice Tuesday morning for a practice as they continue to prepare to meet the Boston Bruins on Thursday night.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Michal Neuvirth returned to the ice as a participant in practice, skating both before the session and during it.  Despite being able to practice, Neuvirth does not believe that he will be ready to play on Thursday, but hopes to be able to be back by the end of the series.  Tomas Vokoun also skated before practice, attempting to work out his wonky groin, but was not pleased with the results of his test.  It is looking less and less likely that Vokoun will be ready to play anytime soon.

Alexander Semin, who took a "maintenance day" on Monday, returned to the ice for practice.  As such, the lines were Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Backstrom-Semin, Hendricks-Beagle-Johansson, Aucoin-Perreault-Ward, Knuble-Halpern-Eakin.  Also of note is that defenseman Jeff Schultz has been skating with Dennis Wideman the last two days, with Dmitry Orlov down on the last pairing with John Erskine.  This would seem to indicate that Schultz will be in the lineup for game one.

That's all for now.  As always, follow me on Twitter here for news and updates.
