The Caps are about to get practice started here at K-Plex in Arlington, but it is obviously overshadowed by Trade Deadline Day. Brent Johnson and Chris Clark were on the ice before the rest of the guys went out there. Tom Poti is not on the ice, from what I can tell to this point.

Here is how things look:


Ovechkin-Backstrom-Kozlov (red)

Fleischmann-Fedorov-Semin (gray)

Laich-Nylander-Fehr (green)

NOTE: This would make it seem like Nylander will be back in the lineup tomorrow night after four games as a healthy scratch.

Brashear-Steckel-Gordon-Bradley (white)

All of the defensemen except for Poti are out there. Jose Theodore and Michal Neuvirth are manning the nets.

UPDATE: Alex Ovechkin just took a shot off his foot and limped into the locker room. It looked like it went off his right heel, and he was in a lot of pain. He needed help to get off the bench and into the room.

Ovechkin was facing the net when the shot came from the left point. He immediately dropped to one knee and then made his way to the bench.
