Illness and Injuries at Kettler

Captials Insider reports that the Caps will recall two forwards for tomorrow night's game in Atlanta if Alexander Semin (illness) and Boyd Gordon (back) can't go. 

The obvious choice for the center spot is Keith Aucoin, who filled in for Gordon previously.  Who will the other forward be?  Put your guess in the comments!

It won't be Tomas Fleischmann, who still has some conditioning to do after being cleared to resume contact after rehabbing the blood clot in his leg.  He still has two games to serve on his Long Term Injured List spot regardless.

And needless to say, it won't be Michael Nylander either.

Shaone Morrisonn will be a game-time decision with a lower-body injury.  And John Erskine (hand) will travel with the team but is still day-to-day as well.  But then, aren't we all?

Goalie Jose Theodore had pronounced himself fit to play, but according to WP, he'll probably back up Semyon Varlamov tomorrow night.
