The Caps are out on the ice right now for the morning skate. Everyone, including the injured Jeff Schultz and the suspended Donald Brashear, is on the ice.
It is pretty simple — this is either the last on-ice practice of the season, or the Caps will win tonight and live on for another round. The big question for tonight is who replaces Brashear in the lineup.
From the drill that just happened involving lines, it does look like Chris Clark will be in tonight, and on the fourth line with Boyd Gordon and Eric Fehr.
The other three lines look the same as they’ve been the past couple games.
For New York, the question is whether or not top forward prospect Artem Anisimov will make his postseason debut tonight, or if the Rangers will stick with both Aaron Voros and Colton Orr.
