Jay Beagle was hopeful that he’d be practicing with the Capitals very soon after making his first appearance back on the ice Friday. That wasn’t the case Monday.
Every player on the active roster participated, but not Beagle, who is on the injured list trying to work back from a concussion. There was no immediate reason to believe this represented any setback, as the 26-year-old does need to clear multiple steps to progress further.
Mike Green was on the ice with his teammates this time as he attempts to get back into the lineup with a right ankle injury.
Cody Eakin, a healthy scratch Saturday night at the Islanders, was slotted on the second line with Marcus Johansson and Alexander Semin.
Here are the lines:
Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Troy Brouwer
Cody Eakin - Marcus Johansson - Alexander Semin
Jason Chimera - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Matt Hendricks - Mathieu Perreault/Jeff Halpern - Mike Knuble
