Here’s the daily post-practice injury update:

*Alex Ovechkin was just taking the day off and will play tomorrow.


*Tyler Sloan says he is ready to go.

*Mike Green and Tom Poti both said they would like to play tomorrow but will wait to see how they feel in the morning. Green put his shoulder at 90 percent, and he thinks it could be very close to 100 tomorrow. Poti said this was the first time he has skated as hard as he can for a full practice in two weeks, so he needs to see how his groin reacts.

*Sergei Fedorov and John Erskine did not go on the ice at all.

*Bruce Boudreau did not want to commit to having any of the injured guys tomorrow night, saying they are all still questionable.

*Eric Fehr skated for the first part of practice, but left early and is not ready to play.
