Defenseman Sean Collins and power forward Oskar Osala have been sent back to Hershey. Mike Green and Sergei Fedorov will play this evening, giving the Caps the closest thing to a healthy lineup in several games.
Collins and Osala probably aren’t going anywhere just yet, though. They probably won’t join their teammates in Texas until after the game/tomorrow because, as we’ve seen with the goalie quandry, getting someone here from there in a pinch isn’t easy. Both Collins and Osala will likely stick around in case someone gets hurt tonight.
