Johansson, who has missed the past 10 games, passed a neuropsychological test Tuesday to be cleared for contact and is going through the proper protocol to play, a team spokesman said Wednesday.
Hamrlik will find out at noon Wednesday whether he's going to another NHL team or staying with the Caps. The 38-year-old has played just four games this year, a healthy scratch for the past 11.
When the Tampa Bay Lightning earned the right to pick first overall in the 2008 draft, "Seen Stamkos?" billboards went up all around the area. It was no secret that Steven Stamkos was their guy, set to become the face of the franchise.
Adam Oates knew what he was getting into, but he could've done without an 0-2 start to his NHL head coaching career, especially in a 48-game season.
Roman Hamrlik this past week became one of the loudest voices of the NHL lockout. "Disgusted" with the process, he questioned NHL Players' Association head Donald Fehr and called for a vote of 700-plus to get back on the ice.
Roman Hamrlik's eyes opened wide. He had just been told that Marc Bergevin was named the Montreal Canadiens' new general manager, and the veteran defenseman had much more to add than anyone recalled.
Mike Green's brutal hesitation to get off the ice cost the Washington Capitals the game at Madison Square Garden in a 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon.
Mike Green was the most prolific offensive defenseman in the NHL with back-to-back 70-point seasons starting in 2008-09. Now, he had gone 26 games without a goal, dating to Oct. 22.
Dale Hunter likes when his team blocks shots. That's no secret. But Thursday's performance in Game 1 of the first-round series with the Boston Bruins was a whole different level for the Washington Capitals.
Roman Hamrlik was in an unfamiliar spot Wednesday night, watching the Washington Capitals lose from the press box. It was the 37-year-old defenseman's first healthy scratch of the season, as coach Dale Hunter criticized Hamrlik's play of late.
It fell apart for the Washington Capitals under Bruce Boudreau when defenseman Mike Green hurt his ankle and couldn't play.
Roman Hamrlik's play has raised the ire of fans for being responsible when opponents score on the Washington Capitals. His minus-10 rating and 18 penalty minutes haven't helped.
The Capitals were happy to snap a four-game skid. Happy enough to play the victory music, happy enough to have some smiles.
Dennis Wideman joked recently that the right leg hematoma he suffered in March makes that leg "instantly older" - like 37-year-old Capitals teammate Roman Hamrlik.
Ask any NHL player about injuries, and there's a good chance he'll find the nearest wooden object and give it a tap. The Capitals had been going pretty well on that front through a half-dozen games, but now Washington has hit a rough patch in one of the worst areas --- on defense.
Erat spoke to New York Rangers defenseman Roman Hamrlik, who had good things to say about the organization despite some issues he had during his time with the Caps.
New York, which assumes the $3.5 million cap hit and remaining salary, claimed Hamrlik the day after defenseman Marc Staal took a puck to the face.
