The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday morning at 11:30 for a practice as they try and regroup from a 4-1 smacking at the hands of the Bruins on Sunday afternoon.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Brooks Laich did not practice with the team after sustaining a knee injury during Sunday's game.  Dale Hunter said afterwards that Laich was walking on it, but that doesn't mean anything; you can walk on knee ligament damage.  Only an MRI can reveal the full extent of the injury.

Because of Laich's absence, the lines were new and...interesting, to say the least.  They were: Ovechkin-Johansson-Brouwer, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, Hendricks-Halpern-Ward, and Beagle-Aucoin-Knuble.

Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom did not skate again, the third consecutive game that Green did not work out on ice.  Hunter said that Green is still on his recovery timetable, however, which seems unlikely to me.  There is still absolutely no timetable for Backstrom being Back-strom.

That's all for now.
