Tom Poti hasn’t played since the middle of the first period. GM George McPhee said it was a groin injury. Down 3-0 through 40 minutes, this is turning into a long day for the Caps.

UPDATE: Jose Theodore has replaced Brent Johnson for the start of the third period. Poti isn’t on the bench to start the final period.
