The Washington Capitals were back on ice Wednesday morning of another day of training camp as they continue to work towards Saturday night's opener in Tampa Bay.  Some notes from Kettler Capitals Iceplex: Following the practice in the morning, forward Tom Wilson was sent home to Plymouth of the OHL to continue his development this season.  Though Wilson was impressive in camp by all accounts, there never really was a chance that he would make the team, and Otherwise, the Caps' forward lines remained the same: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Johansson, Wolski-Ribeiro-Brouwer, Chimera-Beagle-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Crabb/Fehr.  This is how you have to expect the opening night lineup to look, especially as the injured Brooks Laich did not skate. In other roster-related news, coach Adam Oates annoucned when asked that he would "absolutely" contemplate playing Alex Ovechkin on the penalty kill this year.  At once terrifying and a bit exciting, it brings to mind the change that Ilya Kovalchuk made in his game last year and brings some hope that Ovechkin that can do the same. 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.
