The Caps are going through the morning skate right now at American Airlines Center. It is my first time in the building, and I’ve got to say that other than the scoreboard I am impressed with the place. I love the huge lower bowl/small upper deck.
Viktor Kozlov and John Erskine are going to play tonight. Tom Poti is on the ice, but he is not ready to play. David Steckel and Eric Fehr will be the healthy scratches. This is the first time for Steckel. Bruce Boudreau said he’s not playing as well as he was at the start of the season and he needs to use his body more. Here are the lines:
Jose Theodore will start in net and he will be opposed by Marty Turco, who has started every game for Dallas this season.
