OK, here is the update on some of the Caps’ injured guys. Bruce Boudreau said he hopes to have either Jeff Schultz or John Erskine back tomorrow and both by the end of the week. However, if only one cna play against the Oliers, then either Tyler Sloan or Sean Collins is probably coming back because there would only be five healthy defesenmen (though Sergei Fedorov could play there).
Fedorov said he is ready to play tomorrow, and he was skating with Brooks Laich and Viktor Kozlov on the second line in practice. Boyd Gordon did not practice today, and Boudreau said he doesn’t expect to have him tomorrow night.
