The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Thursday afternoon as they prepare to take on the New Jersey Devils Friday night in Newark.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Mike Green skated before practice for about 30 minutes and then remained on ice for about 15 minutes into the practice, taking rushes with the other defensemen.  Green looked good in testing his injured groin muscle, but there is still no timetable for his return.  He did not speak with reporters afterwards.

The lines were as follows: Johansson-Backstrom-Semin, Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Halpern-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Knuble-Beagle.  Beagle seemed to be increasing the intensity of his work again following a solid practice Monday, taking a regular rotation in line rushes and taking some hits along the wall.

Dale Hunter confirmed after practice that Michal Neuvirth will start Friday against the Devils.  This will be his fourth consecutive game in net.

The Capitals will travel to New Jersey this afternoon.  That's all for now.
