Jay Beagle has been recalled from Hershey today. Bruce Boudreau didn’t want to divulge his reasons, but he could provide a little more sandpaper on the fourth line than Michael Nylander can provide.

Also, on the injury front John Erskine will be on the ice in 45 minutes when the Caps go out for their morning skate, but Boudreau doesn’t know about his availability for tonight.
