Question of the Day
Chimera, who was demoted to the fourth line at Florida and then relegated to the bench for the majority of the third period, was back with Mike Ribeiro and Alex Ovechkin for Wednesday’s practice. That’s something of a show of faith in the 33-year-old who doesn’t have a goal so far this season.
“We need you to be reliable there,” Oates said. “If you are, great. I love what he brings; that’s really the message.”
When asked about the team’s struggles in certain aspects of the win, Chimera brought up Wednesday’s video session that made mistakes perfectly clear.
“It’s always good to see video and see what you did wrong,” he said. “Sometimes it’s tough to see when you’re up there on the video yourself, but you’ve got to kind of check your egos, which is good.”
Hendricks fights through
Matt Hendricks needed to have his nose reset Tuesday night after breaking it in the second period. It was the fifth time the gritty forward suffered a broken nose during his hockey career.
Hendricks brushed off concern as he wiggled his nose.
“A little bit of a problem there,” he said. “It’s all right.”
“You know the hockey player reputation,” the coach said. “I expect that from everybody.”
Braden Holtby will start in goal Thursday night at the Tampa Bay Lightning, Oates said. … Oates had no update on forward Marcus Johansson, who’s not with the Caps on their Florida road trip. The team has called him day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
