ARLINGTON, VA-The Washington Capitals held a “morning skate” this morning as they prepare for a team practice at Verizon Center tonight at 7:00 pm in front of their fans. They were only on the ice for about 25 minutes.
The Caps practiced this morning with their exact same lines they’ve had all of camp as Brooks Laich continues not to practice, but did skate this morning. Capitals Head Coach Adam Oates would only say on Laich’s status, “He’s progressing, so we’ll see”.
The practice is free tonight and the Caps will scrimmage a little bit, throw stuff into stands, conduct a question and answer session and sign autographs.
Listen here to what Adam Oates & Braden Holtby had to say today.
