Mike Green will be in the Capitals lineup for Game 1.
I'm going to give an update on the Capitals everyday to keep you guys informed on what the Rangers opposition is up to....
According to Katie Carerra at the Washington Post, D Dennis Wideman, who the Capitals acquired at the trade deadline, is still recovering from a leg hematoma and compartment syndome and is not expected to play in the first round.
Here were today's lines at practice...
Mike Green remains out after suffering a concussion from a Derek Stepan elbow on February 25th.
...not having either Green nor Wideman will be a big loss for the Caps. Could this mean a spot for ex-Ranger Tom Potii?
Wonder if they will retaliate against Stepan. I wouldn't expect it in the playoffs, but if a game (or series) gets lopsided, you never know.
@DO Doubtful not just because it's the playoffs but I think they're smart enough to know that it wasn't a dirty play.
@KevinDeLury I'd hate to see it for that reason, but you know if it was Philly, they would retaliate.
@KevinDeLury True, true.
