Beagle also sent down

← return to In The Room

Jay Beagle is returning to Hershey today. He was packing up his stuff in the dressing room and lamenting the return of bus rides to New England after a weekend flying around sunny Florida. He should be happy with the first impression he made in the two games he played, and it won’t be a surprise to see him back again sometime soon.

Here’s a few others tidbits from today:

* Viktor Kozlov will not play tomorrow night. Bruce Boudreau said the groin injury isn’t more serious than previously believed, but he’s just not ready yet.

* Boudreau said Karl Alzner wasn’t going to be in the lineup tomorrow night, and he could be back on Friday.

* Michal Neuvirth took an Alex Ovechkin shot off the wrist on his glove hand near the end of practice, and it looked like it sting him pretty good.

* Boudreau’s take on a forthcoming Slapshot remake was positive and he said he looks forward to seeing it.

“I just wonder who they’re going to get to play me,” he joked.

* The coach also said he is looking forward to having some continuity with the forward lines. His top two grous (Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin and Fleischmann-Fedorov-Fehr) will likely remain the same for a fourth straight game, which might be new standard for this season.
