Karl Alzner and Bryan Helmer will be sent to Hershey today. As I am writing for tomorrow’s paper, Alzner had been planning a trip to New York City for the break, but knew he might be shipped to Hershey. Helmer knew all along that was his destination.
Will either guy be back on Tuesday? Shaone Morrisonn and Tom Poti could both be ready to play against the Bruins. Poti’s return puts the Caps back in the same salary cap crunch as earlier this season when there wasn’t room for Alzner.
For now, I’ve got to get on a plane here in snowy Ottawa, but I’ll check back Friday when I am en route to Montreal for the ASG festivities.
