Rookie defenseman Karl Alzner has been recalled by the Washington Capitals and is on the ice with the team in Boston for their practice today.

Corey will have an update later on the status of Tom Poti, but if he’s ready to play the two defensemen can’t be on the roster together for long because of salary cap restrictions.

Tom Poti is on the ice as well. Corey will have an update on his chances of playing on Tuesday in a bit.

Meanwhile, here are the lines:

Ovie / Backstrom / Kozlov (and Steckel — Ovechkin went off the ice early)
Laich / Fedorov / Semin
Fleischmann / Nylander / Fehr
