The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Sunday morning following their game four win over the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon.  Some updates from Arlington:

Once more, the story of the day was that there was no story from Kettler Capitals Iceplex.  Dale Hunter's lines remained unchanged: Ovechkin-Laich-Johansson, Chimera-Backstrom-Semin, Hendricks-Beagle-Brouwer, Knuble-Aucoin-Ward, and Sjogren-Perreault-Halpern.  One bit of news, however, is that captain Alex Ovechkin, who delivered a questionable hit to New York defenseman Dan Girardi in the second period of Saturday's game, is not expected to receive any supplemental discipline.

The defensive pairing of Schultz and Wideman remained unchanged, as well. Some had speculated that after another poor defensive performance by Wideman, he may be benched in favor of Dmitry Orlov for game five, but knowing Dale Hunter and the fact that the Caps won, the likelihood of that happening in a game are very low.

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